Fitness enthusiasts to compete in 'show of strength' for Skipton children's charity – Craven Herald

GYM junkies will test their might and muscle in support of a Skipton children’s charity.
Around 50 competitors will be put through their paces to raise cash for The Principle Trust which provides free respite holidays for needy children across Yorkshire.
Aged between 16 and 60 years old, the fitness fans are all members of Embsay-based CrossFit Skipton, where the competition is taking place on Saturday August 27.
The display of strength, stamina and gymnastic ability will help to fund respite breaks for families with children who are underprivileged, disadvantaged, disabled, have life-limiting conditions, or who have experienced poverty, trauma or abuse.
Leading the challenge will be gym owner Chris Cummins and fitness coach Harry Morse who both competed in the HYROX World Fitness Championships in Las Vegas earlier this year.
Harry said: “Keeping fit is hugely beneficial for both physical and mental health, as well as boosting confidence. We’re looking forward to working up a sweat and raising money to help needy children.”
Founder of The Principle Trust, Mike Davies, MBE, added: “We are indebted to the members of CrossFit Skipton; their continued support allows some of the region’s most disadvantaged, disabled and poorly children to escape their everyday troubles and create valuable, happy memories.”
The CrossFit competitors are regular supporters of the Trust; previous fundraising exploits include Ilkley Half Marathon, Coniston Trail Marathon and in-house fitness competitions.
