“There is growing realisation that a healthy life is not just based around good physical health but more needs to be done to encourage people to take care of their mental health and exercise plays a vital role.
We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Mental Health UK. The work they do is invaluable, providing practical advice and information to people across the UK. The aim of this relay is to challenge and unite all PureGym colleagues in celebration of the work they do to make the UK healthier and raise money and awareness for a great cause.”
