Yesterday our Get Set to Go sports project took part in a football tournament for Men’s Health Week.
The two teams played in the first Step Forward Tees Valley Inclusion Tournament alongside MFC Foundation.
This 5-a-side tournament was not only to promote Men's Health Week but also to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
The friendly tournament featured games of walking football with ‘power play’ music periods where everyone could run around as normal.
We are very proud to announce that one of our teams reached one of the finals and we managed to win our first ever football trophy. Not only that, Nathan from the team was voted ‘player of the tournament’ by other team managers.
The participants has a great day and a huge thank you to Les Curvis from MFC Foundation and Martin Jones from Step Forward Tees Valley for organising the event, also to MFC Foundation for hosting and providing the referees.
Our Get Set to Go programme aims to improve the quality of life of anyone with a mental health problem through sport and activities in the local community.
This project aims to overcome the barriers someone with a mental health issue, may face when wanting to become more physically active.
