Bluecoat Sports is joining the Let’s Move for a Better World Campaign to help combat obesity by encouraging more people to get active, help raise awareness around this issue, and raise money for some much needed equipment.

We need your help!

lets move for a better world

The more people we get on board and the more ‘Moves’ (physical activity performed in the fitness suite and recorded by MyWellness) we generate as a club, the more money we raise. This year, we will also be supporting YoungMinds which is the UK’s leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people.

Last year we raised 400,752 Moves over 3 weeks but we know we can do much better than that, but not without your help!

Did you know?

According to data from the World Health Organisation, the number of adults with obesity has increased globally by 200% in 30 years, and adolescents by 400%. Women, from all demographic groups, are particularly affected, as are young people.

Global obesity figures:

  • 9 billion adults
  • 340 million children
  • 41 million under 5s

What does this mean?

According to the NHS, obesity is dangerous as it can cause a number of serious and potentially life-threatening conditions, such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Some types of cancer, such as breast cancer and bowel cancer
  • Strokes
