As you may remember, we featured a charity boot camp super-deal on the Groupon site, led by Rugby superstar Danny Cipriani. In conjunction with Walker Brothers Fitness, Danny would be showing others how to scrum down for summer, with a fun-filled and exhilarating boot camp session, all to help support the pioneering medical work carried out by Heart Research UK.
Unfortunately we had to postpone the eagerly anticipated day due to Danny being involved in an unfortunate accident, and his subsequent recovery period. We’re pleased to reveal that on Saturday, Danny was back on form and able to lead the class on Clapham Common for the 15 lucky winners!
Groupon Grassroots are joining forces with Together for Short Lives to help promote Children’s Hospice Week. This is the UK’s only awareness and fundraising week for children with life-limiting conditions and the services, like children’s hospices, that support them. It takes place this year between 26 April and 3 May.
Danny Cipriani is one of the most recognisable sporting and celebrity figures in the UK. From a young age he’s always been a talented sportsman; rising to prominence as one of rugby’s best young fly-half’s, going on to earn England international caps at both U-19 and senior level.
It’s safe to say Danny knows a thing or two about leading a healthy and active lifestyle, and in conjunction with Groupon and Walker Brothers Fitness; he will be showing others how to scrum down for summer with a fun-filled and exhilarating boot camp sessions, all to help support the pioneering medical work carried out by Heart Research UK.
