Slim-a-thon aims to raise £2,000

July 17, 2012

Do you want to shed some pounds? You can now take part in the Footsteps Slim-a-thon between 1st August and 31st December 2012.

Last year’s Slim-a-thon changed the life of Footsteps mum Debbi Barnett whose daughter Annie has extensive brain damage following the contraction of meningitis as a baby. She set out to lose weight and raise money for Annie’s therapy at the Footsteps Centre and has now lost an incredible 5st 6lb. She has also just completed the British 10km on behalf of Footsteps Foundation and has recently become an inspirational leader at her local weight-loss club.

Debbi Says ‘The Footsteps slim-a-thon was just what I needed for a much required kick to lose the weight to be a better support for my daughter! I had been so inspired by Polly’s (Centre Manager at The Footsteps Centre) weight loss last year & I knew that I could do it…and you can too!’

The deal? Simply set your own personal target and walk your way to a healthier you… You could join a club, exercise, watch what you eat and raise sponsorship along the way! There will be a prize for the biggest Loser and the biggest Fundraiser so let the slimming begin!!!
