Fit With Frank Supports Harrison's Racing Team!

05 Feb 2020

Frank Sinclair, owner of Fit With Frank, the online fitness professional and celebrity trainer has pledged his dedication to raising important funds for Harrison's Fund for the month of February 2020.

During this month, Fit with Frank will donate £1 of every membership fee from his online workout club www.fitwithfrank.com. He will also kickstart one of the biggest events of the year in Surrey, the 2020 Mercer Surrey Half Marathon on Sunday 8th March starting a Woking Leisure centre, and he will be keeping spirits up for runners of all abilities throughout the event, which is a flat course, single-loop event, along fully closed roads from central Woking into the surrounding picturesque countryside.

Over the years, 240 runners have put their best foot forward and raised a total of £50,500 for Harrison's Fund from this half Marathon and this year we currently have over 20 runners in our team.

Frank and Harrison have created a video along with Harrison's Fund supporters who will be running the half marathon. The video is a warm-up video filled with essential exercises to ensure runners are ready for the 'off'. Harrison is ultimately whipping Frank and the team into shape while doing a warm-up video for the event. The video will be ready for viewing from the 1st February on the Harrison Fund website and also on www.fitwithfrank.com

"Like most, I had heard about Harrison's Fund but I hadn't really appreciated what it was all about. To have the opportunity to meet Harrison, who suffers from this disease was beyond inspirational. Now I have a full understanding of what Duchenne is and had to opportunity to spend time with Harrison and his family, it's in my eyes, a lottery, anyone of us could have a boy born to us with this fatal neuromuscular condition. Why wouldn't I want to help? I really hope I can have your support so we can help raise funds to find a cure for this terrible disease" Frank said who lives in Surrey.

Heather Smith, Head of Fundraising at Harrison's Fund said: "Having met with Frank a few times now it is really wonderful to see his dedication to the cause. Not only financially but emotionally too. He wants to have an impact on our work and is immersing himself in understanding every aspect involved in our charity. We can't thank him enough for his support."

We still have places available in the Surrey Half Marathon. Adult places are £25 or a team of four is £75 and if you buy three places you get a fourth one free. Each runner must raise a minimum of £100 or £400 for a team of four.

Harrison's Fund will provide each runner with a 'Harrison's Racing Team' running vest sporting the Fit with Frank logo. All runners are welcome to meet pre and post-race at our Gazebo in the race village.
