HUNDREDS of miles will be conquered by care home staff and volunteers in a triathlon challenge for the Stroke Association.
Workers at Aaron Court Care Home will cover 414-miles on a rowing machine, static bike and treadmill.
Starting on Monday, 30th July, they aim to complete the challenge ahead of their summer fayre, at 1:30pm, Saturday, 4th August.
They are appealing to local gyms and fitness enthusiasts to lend their support and equipment for the triathlon.
Lindsey Bevan, home manager at Aaron Court Care Home, on Princes Road, said: “We need to loan a rowing machine and a treadmill or cross trainer for one week to complete the challenge.
“We are also seeking volunteers to come in and work the bike, treadmill and rowing machines to support staff and families who are already taking part.
“Anyone interested in participating and helping to raise funds for the Stroke Association should contact the home.”
She added: “The Stroke Association is close to the hearts of everyone at Aaron Court and is also Hill Care’s chosen charity for 2018.
“We’re joining dozens of fellow Hill Care homes across the north in raising as much as possible for the Stroke Association throughout the year.”
Anyone interested in donating, lending equipment or participating in the charity triathlon challenge should contact Liz Daykin on 07989 527046 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
