Hogarth Spine-a-thon Supported By Nigel Havers And James Cracknell
Event at the Hogarth Health Club will raise money for member injured in bike accident
The Hogarth 24 hour Charity Spinathon is back for 2013 and takes place next Friday and Saturday, October 19. This event involves teams of up to 6 people taking to spinning bikes in classes for 24 hours non-stop and will raise funds this year for Hogarth member Russ Dawkins, a very fit 40-year old who had a horrific bike accident in France back in June.
Double Olympic Gold Medallist, James Cracknell MBE, has set up his own fund raising challenge during the Spine-e-athon, to dress up in his Olympic kit including his gold medals hold the Olympic Torch and pay the charity lots of money! We suspect there may be some interesting pics!! A LOT OF FUN will be had by all and a whole load of money raised - the last two Spinathons raised over £15,000!

Tim Slater of the Hogarth Club explains: "This year we have called the event the Hogarth Spine-a-thon as we will be raising funds for Russ Dawkins' Rehabilitation Charities. Russ as a super fit 40 something year old very special Hogarth member, had an horrific bike accident out in the French mountains back in June and has just recently moved to Stoke Mandeville Hospital where he is making the best progress possible."

There will be a party on the Friday Night during the Spine-a-thon celebrating Russ's survival and his extraordinary ability to meet the challenges he has been facing! On the Saturday during the day of the Spine-a-thon the Club will continue whilst moving seamlessly into OXJAM CHISWICK. Only Club members can participate in the Spine-a-thon event but non-members wishing to make a donation to Russ’s charity should contact Terry Rodham, Group Wellness Manager at the Hogarth.
