FREE HEALTH CHECKS!

The Yorkshire Cricket Foundation are pleased to be working with BUPA this season to offer free health checks to spectators and staff, with the aim being to increase and improve health awareness and provide healthy lifestyle advice to those attending the cricket.

BUPA will be attending their first fixture on Sunday 7th May, where they will carry out health risk assessments to all adults wishing to partake. The checks will focus on key health measures associated with diabetes, heart disease and strokes. BUPA’s goal is “Helping You Find Healthy”. The health checks will look to measure blood pressure, grip strength, BMI and hip to waist ratio to determine the risks of developing preventable diseases.

“We think this is a great opportunity for spectators and staff at Yorkshire Cricket to take advantage of. The checks are quick and non-invasive, but contribute significantly to health awareness.” Beth Cook, Foundation Project Officer.

Diseases such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes do not always have visible symptoms which is why it is important to take advantage of health checks when they are available. Qualified Health Advisors will conduct a range of non-invasive health checks and offer advice where necessary.

BUPA will be attending three further fixtures this year to deliver the same health checks. Please see list below for additional opportunities to have your health checked:
• Friday 2nd June – YCCC Vs. Lancashire
• Friday 7th July – YCCC Vs. Nottinghamshire
• Thursday 17th August – YCCC Vs. Northamptonshire

The health checks will be conducted in Classroom 2 in the East Stand before and during games. No prior booking is necessary, just show up on the day!
