Young cricketers' Yo-Yo Test fundraiser

Boys and girls from the Cheshire Cricket Board have pushed their bodies to the limit to raise a staggering £3,322 for Children with Cancer UK!

All the participants, aged nine to 19, took part in a gruelling running exercise known as the Yo-Yo Test to raise money for us.

Hundreds of supporters!

More than 200 young people took on the annual test.

It measures their aerobic capacity and endurance levels. Once the test is complete each participant is given a level which helps coaches to track improvements in fitness levels over a period of time.

All the players approached the test with great determination, displaying athleticism and courage to achieve personal goals and beat their previous scores.

What’s more, they helped raised an incredible amount of money for Children with Cancer UK, as well as two other charities.

Cheshire Cricket Trust Trustee, David Sharp said:

The support from the players’ family and friends has been amazing, with hundreds of people donating to excellent causes.

Thank you!

Thank you to all the boys and girls that took part, all the friends and family that sponsored them, and of course to the Cheshire Cricket Board for choosing to support Children with Cancer UK and raising £3,334!
