Project Title: Football Fans in Training
Award: £9,320


Argyle Fans in Training did a fantastic job at engaging and invigorating 130 men who were at risk of coronary heart disease, in a six a side Healthy Heart Football League with a focus on weight loss.

Teams were rewarded bonus goals for healthy and sustainable weight loss and offered regular health screening, but this was more than just a football slimming club.

Listen to Gary’s story about his journey to becoming a heart champion through rekindling his love of football on the video above.
