MEMBERS of a unique weight loss group complicated a remarkable challenge inside The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Wednesday night.

The LiveWire/Fit To Tackle ‘Mount Kilimanjaro’ challenge raised more than £500 for Comic Relief.

Around 70 people took part tackling the stadium steps, doing a combined total of 133 laps of the stadium – that’s the equivalent of virtually climbing the iconic African mountain six times.

The challenge was inspired by this year’s Comic Relief celebrity Kilimanjaro climb, which was broadcast on TV – that saw famous faces including Alexander Armstrong and Shirley Ballas tackle the challenge.

People taking part last night donned red noses, T-shirts, deeley boppers and face paints.

Tom Kearney, LiveWire Advisor and Fit To Tackle coach, said: “It was fantastic seeing so many people – including current and past Fit To Tackle bootcamp participants and their family and friends as well as LiveWire staff – coming together to tackle the stadium steps.

“It was hard work but everyone did it with a smile and the admirable team spirit we associate with Fit To Tackle was definitely in evidence, helping to keep people going.

“It was absolutely brilliant to see current and past Fit to Tacklers taking part and using their new and improved fitness levels to raise money for such a worthy cause. Well done everyone who took part.”
