In November 2021, House of Fisher decided to participate in a 3,000 squat challenge to raise money for Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Participants agreed to perform 100 squats per day for the entire month to raise awareness and money for this incredible cause.
What is Motor neurone disease (MND)?
Motor neurone disease (MND) is a fatal, rapidly progressing neurological disease that attacks the nerves that control movement (motor neurones) so that muscles no longer work. Motor neurones control important muscle activity such as gripping, walking, speaking, swallowing and breathing.
MND is more common than most realise and a person’s lifetime risk of developing MND is around 1 in 300.
In the UK, there are around 5,000 adults with MND in the UK at any one time and six people are diagnosed with MND every day.
A family member of the #HOFfamily was sadly afflicted with MND, so supporting this worthy cause in a small way was something we were passionate to do.
How did the Squat Challenge Go?
As a group, an incredible total of 21,955 squats were completed during November! Despite aches and pains, plus the discovery of new muscles many of us did not know existed, we hit this amazing number! Well done to everyone involved from House of Fisher, our parent company T A Fisher and even our outsourced marketing agency Fruitful Marketing.
