On Sunday 27th November 100 people participated in the body combat marathon to raise funds for Breast Cancer Care organised by trainer Chris Cerclay of Alexandra Fitness and Fist and Feather. The event raised almost £2,000.
7 body combat instructors entertained the crowd with their high energy, punchy routines and an invigorating dance mix. Amongst the instructors was Veronique, who beat breast cancer and is now pregnant with her baby due in January. Her uplifting story was shared at the start of the event to put things into perspective and remind participants about the cause we are raising money for.
The body combat marathon took place at Compton School in Finchley which boasts an impressive success rate in sport and academic achievements and actively encourages pupils to follow healthy eating guidelines.
