PHYSIOTHERAPISTS hope to bounce their way into the record books by taking part in the world’s largest exercise ball class for charity.
Staff from BMI Goring Hall Hospital, in Bodiam Avenue, Goring, are encouraging people to join them for The Big Bounce 2011 on Sunday, May 22.
The record attempt will take place at Worthing Leisure Centre at the same time as other BMI healthcare hospitals across the south-east stage their exercise ball classes.
Terry Hallett, physiotherapy manager at Goring Hall Hospital, said: “This is going to be lots of fun and it’s all for a very important cause.
“It’s great to do something for charity across the region and, at the same time, allows our patients, their family and friends the opportunity to have fun and do something good for their health.”
The event will raise funds for Spinal Research, a charity funding medical research to develop treatments for paralysis caused by a broken back or neck. To register to take part in the Big Bounce at Worthing Leisure Centre, people can visit www.bmihealthcare.co.uk/bigbounce
The registration fee is £12 per person, which covers the cost of a “Get bouncing kit”, including a Swiss ball and tee-shirt.
It will be up to each participant to raise as much as possible for Spinal Research, through sponsorship or fund-raising.
