Mini Mermaid Running Club UK Teams with Full of Beans to Bring Inspiring Programme to Merseyside
MERSEYSIDE, 3 MAY 2018 - Mini Mermaid Running Club UK have launched on the Wirral! The club, a unique programme that works with girls between the ages of 7-11 to build self-worth, confidence and resilience, have started working with Full of Beans Fitness Ltd, offering the first ever programme on the Wirral. Michael Green of Red Systems Specialist Glazing, have complemented the efforts of Full of Beans Fitness by sponsoring the experienced coaches who are delivering the programme.
“Full of Beans Fitness is a natural fit for Mini Mermaid Running Club,” said Hannah Corne, Executive Director, Mini Mermaid Running Club UK. “We have a shared belief that physical activity has a profound effect on young girls, emotionally and mentally, as well as physically. With studies showing girls’ confidence peaks at 9 years old, we work to strengthen their self-esteem and belief in themselves to set and achieve amazing things.”
The Mini Mermaid programme uses a multi-week curriculum that combines mindfulness, physical activity, and games. Girls learn about self-compassion, goal setting and the value of exercise. At the end of the programme, the girls participate in local 5KM challenge, at which they set their own goals. The real celebration stems not from their time, but rather their ability to work hard and persevere to achieve that goal.
“We really excited to be delivering the Mini Mermaid programme in the North West,” said Nicky Adams, Director, Full of Beans Fitness Ltd. “Recognising some of the problems young people are increasingly struggling with, we have been looking for a programme that combines physical activity with self-development which builds confidence, tackles low self esteem and gives girls the power to be able to complete a 5k course at the very end. What’s not to love? The fact that OFSTED also value the programme is fantastic and we hope to be able to offer the club to as many girls as we can around the North West.”
“We are delighted to support this project as it is a subject very close to REDs heart,” said Michael Green from RED SYSEMS. “We have a number of runners in work and we support health and fitness across the company by offering all staff members gym membership as we believe that it helps you both mentally and physically.
I think that this is a brilliant initiative by the Full of Beans team and we look forward to seeing them grow and roll it out across other schools”
