Red Nose Day, 2011 - Dulwich Park, Sat 12th March 2011

 




Project London Healths FREE event saw a 60-strong team in Dulwich Park for Red Nose Day 2011.  Everyone started off with a warm-up and then set-off in batches of 10 with 30-second gaps allowing joggers to mix in with the normal park flow.

There was an option to make a donation to Red Nose Day, and manage to raise £410 on the day, and a further £50 from donations a couple of days later.  Ella & Isabelle Hold the Red Nose Day Cheque, with Isabelle, age 4, being the youngest to take part.

5Km & 3Km Sickle cell Awareness- Wed 21st July-10 Dulwich Park
Project London Health worked in partnership with Lambeth PCT's Team Leader & Specialist Nurse - Haemoglobinopathies, Hilda Castillo-Binger, to put this Fun Run together.  Hilda arranged all the Sickle cell support for the event and provided a health-care talk covering what Sickle cell is and its associated challenges.

Julia McCabe (AHM Director of Fitness) warms the group up before they undertook their Fun Run!   Ella, aged 10, completed her first ever 5Km - well done Ella!

5Km & 2.5
Km Fibromyalgia
Awareness
- 28th Feb-10 Wimbledon Park

Left to Right: Kirsty, Cllr Maurice Grove, Kay Sheriston, McCabe, Pam Stewart MBE

This event is dedicated to Kay Sheriston who joined AHM 9-months ago and brought this muscular condition on to AHM's radar.  We were joined by Kirsty also with FM from Croydon, with talks by Pam Stewart MBE Chair for FM UK and Cllr Maurice Grove, Cabinet Member for Adult Services, together with the host - McCabe, Senior Partner of AHM-Go!

The fatigue ranges from feeling tired, to the exhaustion of a flu-like illness. It may come and go and people can suddenly feel drained of all energy – as if someone just “pulled the plug”. Fibromyalgia Syndrome (fibromyalgia for short) is a common illness.


5Km & 2.5Km Diabetes Awareness- 5th Dec-09 Wimbledon Common

This is AHM's first 'Awareness Event' on Wimledon Common for Diabetes, it was absolute fun! Nadia Sawalha headed up the joggers as part of her prep for the London Marathon-2010.  The youngest that achieved the 2.5Km course were 3-years old, well done Sam & Olivia. 

Around 2.5 million people in the UK have Diabetes, and a further 500,000 have diabetes but are unaware that they have it.  Its recommended that 30 mins of exercise a day, 5 times a week, will help to keep you fitter while helping to maintain a healthy blood pressure.  For more information on diabetes, visit Diabetes UK.
