TRFT and the TITANS help tackle obesity!: Obesity Day - Reshape

TRFT and the TITANS help tackle obesity!

Staff at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) and the Rotherham Titans rugby team helped mark the National Obesity Awareness Week with a scrumptious cycle challenge at Rotherham Hospital.

The Rotherham Titans star players and staff from throughout the Trust have been helping to raise awareness of obesity by taking part in a bike-blender cycle to make healthy fruit smoothies! The event, held in the hospital’s Community Corner, was a great success, helping to raise awareness of healthy living and the variety of services available in Rotherham to tackle obesity.

Reshape Rotherham, TRFT’s free, local weight management service and the Rotherham MoreLife Club, for overweight and obese children and their families, were present at the event to provide information about the services and support they provide. Alyson Fedak, Weight Management Team Leader for Nutrition and Dietetic Services at TRFT, said: “The bike-blender cycle was a really fun way to engage with members of the public about obesity and healthy living, whilst also raising awareness of the weight management services available in Rotherham.

“I would like to thank everyone who took part and to the Rotherham Titans for supporting us.”
