Team Leeds Beckett Gymnastics club’s story
LBUGC will be performing 3,000 Skills within 1 hour to help raise money for the ITP support association.
ITP affects 3,000 Adults in the UK at one time. It's disease is unpredictable, and the cause unknown. Those with the disease have incredibly low platelet levels in the blood which can be potentially fatal, as uncontrollable internal hemorrhaging can occur with the slightest of knocks.
We chose this charity as back in February our current Captain developed this disease in which it caused him to step away from exercise entirely, resulting in withdrawing from the biggest gymnastics competition of the year; BUCS.
As we perform this fundraiser we would like to say thank you to all those this charity have helped, and with this event we hope to help many more.
