Fit2Go Festival Deemed “Exceptional”

Blackpool FC Community Trust successfully delivered its three day Fit2Go Festival earlier this week. The Fit2Go festival saw 24 primary schools across Blackpool attend for fun games and activities at Bloomfield Road. Over 1150 Year 4 pupils attended to participate in dodgeball, handball, circuit training and dancing. The Trust also used this opportunity to launch the 21-day Gulp Challenge (Give Up Loving Pop) which will raise awareness and promote healthy drink choices. Fit2Go aims to encourage children to live a healthy lifestyle, take part in regular physical activity and to join in with local sports clubs and community programmes, which will ultimately improve their overall health and wellbeing.  Stanley Primary School were one of the many schools that attended the festival and Year 4 teacher Mrs Page was delighted with the event. “Our Year 4 children have really enjoyed the Fit2Go Festival. They have participated in lots of games and activities that they would not normally have the opportunity to do so in school. It’s been a really enjoyable day for both pupils and staff.” The Trust’s Senior Health and Education Officer Marc said, “We are really proud with how the event went and thankful for all the schools that came down to participate. The festival is the pinnacle of the Fit2Go year and an acknowledgement to the local Primary Schools who support the Fit2Go programme. The children had a fantastic time and the behaviour was exceptional, and a credit to their schools. It was great to see big smiles throughout the three days.”  For more information on the Fit2Go Festival with photos and videos, visit www.blackpoolfccommunitytrust.co.uk or contact (01253) 348691.
