LifeCycle Malta Foundation will hold its “Sufferfest” fitness challenge on 31 August and 7 September, to show outsiders the difficulties cyclists of the LifeCycle Challenge go through during their tour into Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia on 12-21 September, according to a press release sent to Business Malta.
“We are inviting individuals as well as groups of friends or employees to take part in our studio. Participants will attempt three cycling challenges, each challenge taking some 45-55 minutes with a 15-20 minute refreshment break in between, where healthy food snacks and Nescafé 3in1 coffee will be available. All funds will go towards our cause,” said Alan Curry, Founder of LifeCycle Challenge.
In order to raise money for the cause LifeCycle stands for, the event sports a €50 entrance fee covering the cost of a t-shirt, an official certificate and entry into a lottery with prizes.
LifeCycle is a non-profit organization (NGO) that raises money in order to support patients suffering from kidney failure covering awareness, treatment and research. The foundation works also hand in hand with the medical staff at the Renal Unit of Mater Dei Hospital and the University of Malta Research Trust (RIDT).
The charity event will utilise video workouts and indoor bikes at ChicPhysique Fitness Studio, based at Hilltop Gardens in Naxxar.
Nestlé has recently donated €35,000 to the Nescafé Life Cycle Challenge, supporting a new research programme of kidney disease at the University of Malta with €25,000, and helping the Renal Unit Support Health Hub (RUSH) with €10,000.
