Lime Venue Portfolio is kicking off 2019 with a weekend Boot Camp for the meetings and events industry.
The initiative is supported by World Obesity’s Healthy Venue campaign, and takes place during National Obesity Awareness Week (14th – 20th Jan 19).
I will run alongside ‘Harrison’s Journey’, set up by Kerry Wright, head of group sales at Lime Venue Portfolio, and her son Harrison, which inspires and supports children and their families who struggle with their weight.
The boot camp aims to bring together event professionals and their families, to take part in a weekend focusing on health and wellbeing. This will include fitness activities, nutritional education and a mindfulness session.
In addition to the boot camp, the Lime Venue Portfolio Team will be partaking in several health and wellbeing initiatives to promote the importance of event professionals looking after themselves.
‘Harrison’s Journey’ has become both an internet and media sensation over the last few years following Harrison, Kerry’s son, appearing on national television and radio and, winning a BBC Radio One Teen Hero award for inspiring other children around the world through blogs and vlogs about his struggle to lose weight.
Kerry Wright commented: “We’re keen to be a cheerleader for events that address the health and wellbeing of delegates and believe we have a duty of care to support the health and wellbeing of event professionals we work with.
“We all know that January is a key health month, so we’re doing all we can, both through the options we offer event organisers within our venues, and through our relationships with our customers, to support health and wellbeing in not only January, but throughout 2019.”
