A CHARITY fitness event will be held this month to help raise funds and awareness about organ donation, in the name of a local girl who has cystic fibrosis.
Blackwood’s Chloe Patterson (19), needs a double lung transplant. Her cousin, Cheryl McCutcheon, decided to organise an event in her honour.
Cheryl said: “A few of Chloe’s friends, who also had CF, have sadly passed away and she has been pretty down as a result. So I wanted to do something which would cheer her up.”
Cheryl teamed up with FoxFit Bootcamps to organise a special outdoors fitness camp in Cumbernauld House Park at 10am on September 14. Anyone can participate in return for a donation. See Facebook and Justgiving for more information.
