MFCF uses its Arriva Football themed Health Bus to help combat poor health in areas of deprivation. Our bus has a full range of health equipment on board including exercise bikes and a stepper.
The bus has wide screen TV and stadium seats on board which allows students to take part in lessons whilst on the bus. The courses delivered aim to increase knowledge and understanding of health issues as well as boosting confidence and self-esteem of those children involved.
The bus can also be found outside the North Stand on a match day, offering health checks for those who come aboard. We would like to thank Cornerstone Business Solutions for sponsoring our health bus and providing us with I.T. equipment and an Xbox One.
The Health Bus is in attendance at Middlesbrough home matches, where fans can come aboard to check their fitness levels, use our health equipment or have a go on FIFA.
“The Health Bus visited our school for a 6 week course and delivered the message of healthy lifestyles to our Key Stage 2 children. Paul was fantastic and the children really looked forward to the lessons. The lessons were interactive, engaging and fun and the children loved doing the fitness testing as well”
