Supported by JMW Solicitors, the event takes place on Sunday 20 February, from 10.00am to 1.00 pm, in The Great Room, Preston North End Football Club, Sir Tom Finney Way.

Rainbow Hub’s Workout-athon is back live with challenges to help residents get fit for 2022 and raise funds for the Mawdesley-based charity that supports children and young people with physical and neurological disabilities.

Lyndsay Fahey, Chief Executive of Rainbow Hub, said: “This is a fantastic event that has grown from the beginning.

“Sadly, we had to go virtual last year due to the pandemic, but it was still a success, and we expect a great turnout next month.

“We would like to thank everyone for supporting the event, especially JMW Solicitors and Preston North End Football Club, for allowing us to use their facilities.

“We are also grateful to everyone who is giving up their time to help, especially the instructors, Ultrasec, for attending the event to provide first aid, and Gareth Edwards of Gareth Edwards Photography.”

The closing date for postal entries is Thursday 17 February, and the deadline for online entries is 12 noon on Friday 18 February. Alternatively, entries can turn up on the day.

Sponsorship is not compulsory but is encouraged, as participants can raise more funds for Rainbow Hub by getting family and friends to support them.
