CHARITY

OUR CLUB CHARITY

 

Our Club charity, as chosen by our members is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

 

Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,500 people in the UK. You are born with CF and cannot catch it later in life, but one in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without knowing.

 

Activity Unlimited is the Trust's programme to help everyone with CF to stay active and take control of their physical health and wellbeing.  As part of this programme, they have been working on a group of videos demonstrating safe, beneficial exercises that can help to improve your overall health and fitness from the comfort of your home.

As a sports society, we are particularly interested in those living with CF being able to take part in sport and staying as active as possible. Therefore all of the money we raise throughout the year at our charity events go towards supporting the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

CHARITY EVENTS

 

YORKSHIRE 3 PEAKS

In 2019 a group of our members, along with some other University of Leeds students, climbed the Yorkshire 3 peaks in order to raise money for our club charity. All of our participants managed to complete the feat in under 10 hours.
