Men’s Health Week is an annual event in the UK, celebrated the week before Father’s Day. Each year, it focuses on a different disease affecting men.
The aim of Men’s Health Week is to spread awareness, discuss prevention, identify the signs and symptoms and teach people how to live with their disease.
A staggering 1 in 10 men now have diabetes and over the next 20 years, there is expected to be a dramatic increase in middle-aged men diagnosed with this life-changing condition.
To raise awareness and to try and prevent this further, we are running FREE health checks across our Activ8 venues this Thursday 14th! The health checks will cover BMI and blood pressure checks as well as taking your weight and measurements. Check the Times and venues below:
Billingham Forum: 3pm – 5pm
Thornaby Pavilion: 10am – 12noon & 4pm – 6pm
Stockton Splash: 11am – 1pm & 5pm – 7pm
Plus members can bring along a male family member or friend for a FREE health check & FREE gym and swim pass at Billingham Forum on Thursday. (please ring ahead to book a mini induction).
