Fundraiser / EMD UK supports 12-hour exercise marathon for Women’s Aid will be running a 12-hour exercise marathon to raise 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 per cent in users visiting their Live Chat site.

To support women and children enduring lockdown in abusive homes, Women’s Aid has extended its opening hours and online services.

Taking place between 8am-8pm, 24 qualified group fitness professionals will lead 30-minute fitness classes.

There will be family-friendly classes with viBeatz Kidz & Teenz, Baby Beats and Darcey Bussell’s DDMIX sessions, aimed at both children and parents.

The event will also have half-hour slots, with classes such as Zumba, Boxercise, Clubbercise, Broga and RockBox.

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.

Donations can be made to the JustGiving page below.
