FastTrack Fit Camp raised both heart rates and money for charity on Bank Holiday Monday with a family Fit Camp session at Bearwood Recreation Ground in Winnersh.
Over 60 people came along to the family friendly fitness session to raise money for the Royal Berkshire Hospital’s Robbie the Robot Appeal. We had participants ranging in age from 4 to 70 years of age and they ran, squatted, press-upped and jump jacked their way into the New Year.
We’re delighted to have raised £400 for the Robbie the Robot Appeal at the Royal Berkshire Hospital. Thank you to everyone who came along!
January camps start week commencing 9 January and more information can be found on this site.
The Robbie the Robot appeal raises money to pay for ‘Robbie’, the da Vinci robot, that has transformed prostate cancer operations at the Royal Berkshire Hospital.
The robot provides the latest in state of the art robotic assisted surgery: this allows surgeons to perform radical prostate operations using all the clinical and technical capabilities of traditional open surgery, whilst enabling them to operate through the tiny incisions which characterise ‘keyhole’ surgery.
The Royal Berkshire NHS Trust acquired the da Vinci robot with a down payment from a very generous donation. To complete the purchase and own ‘Robbie’ outright we have to raise £1m over the next three years.
