New social enterprise travel agency Charitable Travel has today (Monday 13 July) launched a partnership with The Mintridge Foundation and Atlantic City USA to provide free, Olympic inspired, Weekday Wellness sessions for families to help keep children active and learn about fitness and nutrition during the school holidays, with the opportunity to ask advice from world-class athletes.
Charitable Travel Weekday Wellness is a series of live, online sessions, hosted by personal trainer and Charitable Travel Wellness Ambassador Jenny Tomei, held at 8am via Zoom every weekday from 13 July throughout the summer holidays.
Incorporating fun and flexible full bodyweight workouts and covering ideas and tips on diet and nutrition, the sessions will provide young people of all ages, abilities and physical capabilities with the chance to increase their fitness participation and create greater knowledge of health and wellbeing.
The interactive sessions hosted by Jenny will also offer young people the opportunity to ask Olympic and Paralympic athletes’ advice.
The Mintridge Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to enhancing life skills in young people through sport, working with sporting role models from a wide range of disciplines to develop confidence, resilience and create awareness of the importance of mental and physical wellbeing. Over 40 team and individual athlete Mintridge Ambassadors will drop into some sessions to answer questions from participants and parents can nominate children (aged between 9 – 18) for the chance to win a virtual Mintridge mentoring session with double Olympian Marilyn Okoro.
Charitable Travel is the first of its kind, social enterprise travel agency providing travellers with the unique opportunity to donate 5% of the cost of their holiday to a charity of their choice through a partnership with Just Giving. The sport empowerment charity The Mintridge Foundation has been selected as one of the travel company’s recommended charities for 2020 thanks to its fantastic work in engaging and mentoring young people across the UK, harnessing the power of positive sporting role models to improve lives. Atlantic City, USA, a destination offering a wide range of sporting activities on the beach, water and boardwalk is also partnering with the initiative to celebrate the importance of active lifestyles both at home and when on holiday.
