Unit 5 Group Fitness and Rebounce Fitness will be taking on the Snowdon for Sunrise 2024 challenge on 9 June to raise as much as possible for the much-loved local charity. The challenge will see them conquering Wales' highest mountain, setting off in the dark at 1am to reach the summit by sunrise.

Emily Taylor co-owner of Unit 5 Gym and Nikki Lynam, owner of Rebounce Fitness said: “We’re really excited to be supporting Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice for the first time. Our gym is like a family and we love to come together as a team to support local causes in the community.

“This year we have a mixture of 60 clients from both Rebounce Fitness and Unit 5 taking on the challenge. We have already worked so hard to prepare for the climb and raise as much money as possible. We can’t wait to support each other as we embark on this incredible journey.”      

“The support from members of both fitness groups for this year’s fundraiser has been amazing. They have donated raffle prizes, purchased raffle tickets and sponsored us.”  

“The group have been doing practice walks and training hard for the big day. We’re especially proud of our eldest client, Margeret who turned 83 in May. This year marks the 20th anniversary of when she first conquered Snowdon in 2004 and she can’t wait to experience it again with her fitness family.”

Beth Cole, Events Fundraiser at Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to Unit 5 Group Fitness for taking on this impressive challenge for Bluebell Wood.

“Every penny they raise will help us to be there for local children and families who need us.

“Six staff members from Bluebell Wood are also doing the challenge and will be with you every step of the way.”
