Fit for Hospitality launches as running and fundraising campaign

Simon Maguire (pictured), former managing director of Luxury Farm Hotels, has launched hospitality initiative Fit for Hospitality, which provides industry professionals with practical support on physical and mental wellbeing.

Maguire, who is now director of hospitality leadership training West Peak, has opened submissions for people in the industry to join him on a 5k or 10k fundraising run on 21 September in Bournemouth beach promenade.

There are 600 spaces available for participating runners of the Fit for Hospitality campaign, which will raise money for Room to Reward, Hospitality Action and Springboard.

Maguire said: "This initiative is about supporting the wellbeing of our teams across the industry, encouraging and supporting people to get the best out of themselves.

With a squeeze on people and companies' budgets, Fit for Hospitality couldn't come at a better time. I'm incredibly excited about the prospect of 600 people crossing the line in September and believe this is only the start of the Fit for Hospitality journey".

Mark Lewis, chief executive of Hospitality Action, added: "At Hospitality Action, we strongly believe that a healthy and happy workforce is a key ingredient in a successful hospitality business, and we're excited to be involved in the Fit for Hospitality Challenge. Not only will the event promote workplace wellbeing, but the money raised will help hospitality families in crisis during these difficult times."

Chris Gamm, chief executive of Springboard, commented: "The Fit for Hospitality challenge is an exciting and fun way to keep your people fit and healthy and take part in a team challenge. Springboard is delighted to be one of the chosen charities and all money raised will go towards helping young, unemployed and underprivileged people into great jobs in hospitality."
