The Pfizer fund targeted the most highly populated black and ethnic minority areas in Rotherham, and looked to use the power of sport to engage men whose health was at risk. The Trust looked to use sport as tool to improve their fitness levels, stamina, flexibility and reducing their body fat.
Sadly, the funding for the programme has come to an end, but the Trust always like put its projects to bed in true Rotherham United style.
The lads from the RUCST’s Pfizer fund programme took on the tournament, and emerged victorious, claiming the Pfizer 2012 trophy. A trophy that is really awarded to the Trust for its great work within the Pfizer programme, rather than the Health sectors own displays of the Millers’ master classes in the 5-a-side tournament.
Health Officer Alex Wilson said: “It is sad to see the project end, but it has been such a fantastic run. It was such a pleasure to work with some unbelievable people during this programme, and I would like to thank the participants. They always engaged with the activities, and they were just brilliant for every session. Each and every person involved within this programme deserves one of these trophies.”
The Trust would like to thank everyone who got involved with, and supported, the Trust’s Pfizer programme throughout its duration.
