One of the aims of The FoxesTrust board has been to promote fitness through football across all age ranges within the local community of Leicester City Football Club (LCFC).  

To support the aim to promote fitness Foxes Trust have teamed up LCFC to help promote an existing project aimed at Foxes fans. The aim was to engage football fans and promoting healthy lifestyle changes through their loyalty and attachment to the club.

Leicester City Community Trust have been running EuroFIT, a Lifestyle and Activity Programme based out of King Power Stadium.  The aim was to recruit fans with a BMI of 27 and above to take part.

EuroFIT commenced with an information session and was specifically designed to help men to increase their activity levels while providing the information, skills, and techniques required to get fit and feel better. 

The programme participants consisted of 20 like-minded individuals who have a love of football and in particular Leicester City.

Foxes Trust has been instrumental in promoting and celebrating this project and it is an excellent example of how a supporters trust, a club, and the clubs community trust can work together can work together with joint objectives.
