classfinder, the UK’s largest directory of group exercise classes, will be running a 12-hour exercise marathon to raise vital funds for Women’s Aid on Sunday 10th May 2020.
Domestic abuse deaths are three times higher during the period since lockdown when compared to the same time last year. During the first two weeks of lockdown, Women’s Aid reported an increase of 41% in users visiting their Live Chat site.
To support women and children that are enduring lockdown in abusive homes, Women’s Aid has extended their opening hours and online services during the current crisis.
They continue to raise funds with their #SupportSurvivors appeal which classfinder will be supporting through participation in their event.
Classfinder want to make a difference to those that are suffering domestic abuse during this time. They will be raising vital funds for the charity with their virtual marathon as well as highlighting that not everyone is safer at home during this time.
Taking place between 8am-8pm, classfinder have 24 qualified group fitness professionals’ leading 30-minute fitness classes.
The event will also have half hour slots with popular classes like Zumba, Boxercise, Clubbercise, Broga and RockBox, to name but a few. There will be accessible classes, with an inclusive session from Sam James of Inclusfit and low-impact classes from Move it or Lose it, Medau and KFA. These will provide gentle exercises for beginners and those with less mobility.
