Lucy Harrison goes 'flipping' mad for charity

Mon 21 September

Lucy Harrison, Personal Trainer for motive8 North takes on an incredible tractor tyre flip challenge in Leeds City Centre for BTRS.

At the beginning of 2015 health and fitness company, motive8 North of Leeds, decided to support BTRS as their Charity of the Year.

Director of motive8 North, Jenny Cromack said, 'We decided to choose BTRS as our charity of the year for a number of reasons. Firstly many of the team know someone who has had a brain tumour and secondly one of our long standing clients husbands sadly passed away this year after a two year battle with the disease. It made us all realise how precious life is and how you should live life to the full! As a team of personal trainers we wanted to use our passion for fitness to raise money for such a worthy cause.' 

As part of their fundraising so far motive8 North have cycled 180 miles over two days and ran the York 10k.

Lucy Harrison, one of the team's personal trainers decided to take things one step further and on Saturday 19 September she flipped a 75kg tractor tyre, 2000 times in the centre of Briggate Leeds all to raise funds and awareness of BTRS. To put this into perspective, imagine a 5kg sack of potatoes, put 15 of those into a box and try to lift it, now do that 2000 times! It really is a huge challenge. 

We had a team of wonderful volunteers out in force on the day spreading the word about Lucy's challenge and collecting donations. A big thank you to you all!

Through out the day we raised a staggering £1,717.56 for BTRS!! 

Well done to Lucy and the whole of team motive8 North. Your dedication and support has been amazing. Lucy, you are just an absolute superstar!

Motive8 north have now raised £4,000 for BTRS. If you'd like to donate to their Just Giving page, please follow the link below -
