The Clinic to Paris Fun Run

On Saturday 17th of September The Clinic goers, friends and family set upon a huge challenge to run, walk and push the distance from Hove to Paris - an epic 175 miles. It was perfect weather at Hove Rec on the day and over 55 people participated at Hove Rec and from home, smashing our target distance and managing 359 miles and rising well over our goal of £500 which now stands at £2667.17!

 

Well done to all involved, we salute you

Saebo Workshop

The workshop was brilliant and we had ten hands and gloves fitted with exercise programmes designed for all participants. Great work by all involved! If you or anyone you know wants to have a trial with the Saebo Glove or Saebo Flex give us a shout!

Upper Limb Strength Group

We had lots of fun, games and hard work at the Upper Limb group.

We started with a 'back to school' warm up;a game of Piggy in the Middle. This is great for hand eye co-ordintion with encouragement to stretch and reach in all directions.

This was followed by a hard 'core' work out in kneeling combining reaching, rotating and rowing and ending in a competition to gather as many balls as possible.

And finally in true movie style we recreated a scene from 'Game of Thrown's'; hand to hand combat action with wooden poles while trying to avoid deadly missiles thrown at top speed.

Paratri 2015

Paratri 2015 saw The Clinic's Neurofitters take to their bikes, jump in the water and don their running shoes to raise money for the ultimate fitness challenge. After months of training the team did fantastically well in the day and raised over £1800.

Paratri has 7 different events, encouraging anyone to push themselves within their ability. Friends, family and colleagues can also get involved to show support with ages running from 9 years upwards. "Paratri isn't (just) about finishing first but making that exhilarating leap from spectator to participator".

We are currently recruiting our Paratri 2016 team and are aiming to take 10 groups of 3 to the event. For more information on the event take a look at their website here

Sports Relief 2014

In 2014 our Neurofit team completed the Sports Relief Mile. A mile for many wouldn't be a challenge, but if you have been told you may not walk again this feels like a marathon. The team trained extremely hard for the event and manage to raise a enormous £2000 in the process

Edinburgh Marathon 2009

We took four teams to the Edinburgh Marathon in 2009 and raised a fantastic £12,000 for charity. We returned two years later bringing the total raised up  to a £16,000. Friends, family, therapists and Neurofit patients challenged themselves to undertake this enormous test, many continuing to run marathons and joining us in this years Paratri.

We went to Edinburgh as a group and stayed two nights in a lovely hotel, with a great celebration meal after the event. There was a real sense of achievement not just for completing the run and raising the money for charity, but also for those who overcame adversity, pushing themselves to their limit to complete this epic challenge.
