Clients of Manchester Personal Trainers Raise £1.5K for Christies Cancer Charity


Client’s of Manchester personal trainers based at Ollie Lawrence PT really capitalised on charity fund raising this October raising a combined sum of nearly £1.5K for Christies Cancer Care.

Both Race For Life 5k and Christies Night of Neon 10k events were hits for Ollie’s clients who all successfully completed their fundraising charity events in great time. Ollie had been dedicating his time to training his clients ensuring all were in fine shape to compete and hit their maximum sponsorship pledges.

Next, it was Stef, Bev and a number of other clients of Manchester personal trainers based at Ollie Lawrence PT who completed the Night of Neon 10k event on 26th October raising a combined sum of nearly £1K in sponsor money and Ollie and his Manchester personal training team are proud of them all!

“It’s so rewarding to see clients enjoying their training and not only getting something out of it for themselves but also using their increased levels of strength, resilience and fitness to achieve goals for really worthwhile causes.” said Ollie. “Myself and my team are always on hand to support our clients particularly when it comes to charity events, I thoroughly enjoyed attending both Christies Charity events to cheer my clients (now also friends) on personally, I couldn’t be more proud of them and what they’ve achieved!”

Night of Neon 10K run on 26th October saw Christie’s charity and BBC Radio Manchester provide ‘the ten most dazzling kilometres ever walked.’ Entrants of the event were encouraged to wear their loudest florescent clothing along with neon glowing head gear which saw charity walkers and runners illuminating the route through Salford Quays in Manchester.

This year there was a record number of fundraising entrants taking part in Night of Neon 10k and although the evening brought with it a cascade of torrential rain, spirits were certainly not dampened! Salford Quays presented an illuminating picture of all that is good about human nature, support and determination – a vision for all to be proud of indeed.

The fun-filled neon event also provided participants with live entertainment beforehand to get them into a party mood, motivating them on to enjoy every aspect of the evening whilst raising vital funds for the provision of better care and equipment for the Manchester based charity’s cancer patients.

Walkers were provided with free special edition ‘Night of Neon t-shirts’ which shone as brightly as their spirits did in the dark during the evening of the event.

A number of local businesses were also involved with supporting and helping the charity event to become the huge success it was. Along with BBC Radio Manchester support also came from Media City, Salford Council and Pennine Events who contributed magnificently to the organisation in the run up to the evening’s fundraising mission.

National new and used car dealer Arnold Clark provided their continuing support for Christie’s with the use of their vehicles, support which is extended by them for all of Christies’ charity events.

Manchester personal trainers at Ollie Lawrence PT along with his clients had a thoroughly enjoyable and successful evening on this extremely well organised night!

The Night of Neon 10k was such a huge success that there are plans already underway for a repeat event in 2014. Ollie along with his Manchester personal trainers and clients are keeping their eyes out for more information about next years’ Night of Neon 10k along with other Christie’s fundraising events.
