We’re very pleased to announce that our 20th Anniversary event will be sponsored by Fit Reds Vets.
The Fit Reds Vets are a group of men aged over 35 and/or have had health issues. This follows on from BFC’s ‘Fit Reds’ 8 week course which educates and promotes a healthier life style and aims to improve fitness for all involved. It is a successful scheme, which has benefited over 600+ males in Barnsley area to date. When placed alongside recent statistics, that show the average life expectancy for a male from Barnsley is 2 years lower than the national average, it can be seen how important schemes like this really are.
The Fit Reds Vets, carry on the initial good work, and keep up the fitness and football side of it when the course is completed. It’s about a lifestyle change, not a one-off quick-fix. The group meet weekly to participate in circuit training followed by a several games of 5-a-side football at Oakwell, so far we have over 200 members in total, and regularly have around 80+ attendees every Thursday evening.
Alongside that they also have regular matches against similar teams from around the country on weekends, and also participate in other team sports, to help raise money for local charities.
