JCI is turning 100 this year and to celebrate JCI Manchester is bringing you a section of fantastic events.
For those of you who don’t know, JCI is a global organisation of 200,000 young active professionsals that grew out of the vision of one man nearly 100 years ago. Founded in 1915 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA by Henry Giessenbier Jr, the movement of taking local action for global impact spread across borders before eventually becoming an international organisation in 1944.
Since then, JCI members around the globe have collaborated on projects ranging from assisting refugees, providing medical care, advancing education and promoting equality. Young members continue to fuel the JCI movement and take grassroots action for positive change sustaining a legacy of impact. JCI Manchester is no exception to this
As part of a fabulous year of charity fundraising events, you can join JCI Manchester in celebrating the 100 year anniversary by taking part in our JCI 100 x 100 Workout Challenge.
‘100!’ we hear you say?!? Yes, the challenge will see 100 people, doing 100 different exercises, in 45 minutes. Nothing too strenuous, but certainly a fun and exhilarating challenge! Do not fear it’s a body weight only class suitable for all fitness levels, so there is no need to be Usain Bolt to succeed here! The event will be provided by the expert fitness trainers at Pro-Fit21.
The evening will help to raise funds for our nominated charities; Action Against Hunger, Challenge 4 Change and Medequip 4 Kids. Plus, as with any JCI Manchester event it is a chance to have great fun with like minded people.
Following the workout there will opportunity to take part in other activities such as a 3 minute round of Fury5, a Fit4Fives Skills challenge, a Plank Challenge, a Cross Bar Challenge, Hoopla, Giant JENGA and of course plenty of time to network and share a drink or two (beer or a protein shake, whatever your tipple).
A challenge wouldn’t be a challenge without a winner…. there will also be a prize (glory and a cracking certificate) for the winner of giant JENGA. Yes, that’s correct, you can be crowned JCI JENGA CHAMPION. Now that is a title for your LinkedIn profile!
The event will take place at Soccer in the City, Manchester on Monday 6th July from 6.30 pm to 9 pm and only costs £10 per person.
Challenge your friends, colleagues and family to take part in what is set to be a fantastic fun evening of fitness and fundraising.(wow that’s a lot of F’s!).
