UPPER Highway’s 11-year-old Bella Polkinghorne has been anorexic for over a year and no clinic in South Africa will treat children under the age of 14.

She has to receive specialised treatment in Utah, U.S. and the medical and travelling costs are extensive. As a result friends, family and the community has joined forces to raise money to cover these costs.

The latest fund-raising event called “LiveFit” was held in Gillitts on Saturday, 4 March and a total of R3 300 was raised.

A fun, healthy morning of functional circuit based training was had by the 33 participants who got involved.

Everyone was in a festive mood having kicked off a Saturday morning with vigorous exercise for a very worthy cause.

The family thanked LiveFit trainers Grant van Niekerk and Kyle Vahl for making this possible.
