We wish to inform you about a very important event on Saturday the 30th of March here at TJ Reid Health and Fitness.
As some of you may have been aware, Kilkenny was hit with a number of tragedies. In December alone, 3 people died by suicide in Kilkenny. This struck a heavy cord with our team and members. This cast a shadow over what should have been a happy time.
As a result of this we decided to stop talking, and start doing.
We have organsied a charity event, LIFT 4 LIFE, to raise much needed funds for Teac Tom. Teac Tom is a Suicide Prevention Counselling Service - http://www.thethomashayestrust.com
Our ambition is to lift 500,000kg on the day. We can’t do this alone so we need your help. We will be setting up 4 lifting exercises on the gym floor. We need to get as many people as possible to help achieve this goal. Each station will be monitored by one of our staff to ensure correct weight, reps, form and encouragement.
All monies collected on the day will go directly to Teac Tom. This will include day passes, memberships / classes/ gear sold along with all donations on the day.
If any of you would like to bring in some baked goods, we will set up a “Pay What You Want” counter or “Dough for Dough”.
Any help from you will be more than appreciated and will go along way to fighting off this growing social issue.
Thanks in advance,
The TJ Reid Health and Fitness Team
