Slimmers shed 15 stone and raise money for CRUK!

Rugby Slimming World group set to tackle Cancer research Uk charity run in July

Slimmers from Rugby are stepping out for charity this July to celebrate losing 15 stone!

Members of the Dunchurch and Overslade groups are taking part in a fundraising campaign for Cancer research Uk. The event invites members to complete either 5km or 10km on July 4th, where competitors can run or walk to the finish line, starting from Rugby School. The group aims to raise awareness of how activity can be beneficial for health and mental wellbeing. 

As part of the Golden Body Magic Challenge, the 4 members who meet weekly at Rugby will complete the 10km challenge. The group will be taking part in return for sponsorship for Cancer Research UK and the Rugby slimmers can’t wait to lace up their trainers. 

Local Slimming World Consultant Tina Louise is organising the fundraising challenge and says her members are filled with confidence and energy thanks to their weight losses: “I’m so proud of my members who have set themselves the challenge of completing this event and raising money for such a valuable cause. 

“With our Body Magic activity programme, members learn that getting active doesn’t have to bejoining the gym or running marathons. It’s walking the kids to school, doing the gardening, hitting the dancefloor – anything that raises the heart rate a little all counts. And any activity which boosts distance covered will help our members reach their goal. It’s all about starting off gently and then building up until activity becomes a part of a daily routine that’s enjoyable too. 

“I’m sure my members will inspire more people in Rugby to get active and improve their health, while also helping to raise awareness of the link between obesity and cancer. The money raised will go towards an amazing cause and one my members feel very passionate about. We’d love to support Cancer Research UK’s life-saving research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of all types of cancer and their incredible work. Anyone who would like to take part just needs to come along to the Dunchurch or Overslade Slimming World group to find out more.”

Member Kerry, from the Dunchurch groups , has lost 5 stone 5lbs since joining the group, and can’t wait to take part in the Golden Body Magic challenge. 

She says: “If you’d asked me to do that when I joined the group in Dunchurch I wouldn’t have believed you – walking even a mile just felt impossible! However, thanks to the filling and tasty food I’m eating and the fact I’m losing weight each week, I have so much more energy now and I’m ready to smash this challenge! 

“At my group we started talking about easy ways to fit more activity into our day and I soon realised how much more I could do just by making tweaks to my daily routine. Parking the car further from work, walking with friends instead of going for a coffee, getting off the bus a stop earlier than usual, taking the stairs instead of the lift – it’s amazing what can make a huge difference when it comes to step count and I’m looking forward to finding new ways to fit steps in. 

“Throughout my journey the support at the group has been amazing, and I wouldn’t be doing this without my fellow members. My Slimming World group has made anything feel possible – I feel empowered! Each week I stay to share tips and ideas and get so much encouragement, support and inspiration to achieve my goals. It’s the best spent hour of my week. I leave the group feeling full of confidence and ready to take on the world, and I always look forward to seeing all my friends in group the next week to find out how they’ve got on too.”
