Boundaries For Life
Boundaries for life is a health initiative that was founded in 2010 to promote health awareness at sports events throughout the UK. We do this by offering a free health check to spectators and ground staff alike.
Our health promotion strategy is to target people who might otherwise not access regular health checks.
- to promote awareness of very common and preventable conditions
- to identify people who might be at risk of future health problems at an early stage
- to allow people to take charge of their own health, by making them aware of the signs and symptoms of common health problems and to use these as targets for ensuring their future health
Every 20 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with a form of blood cancer and only one in three would find a match within their family. It’s incredibly easy for people to sign up to the national register so we will be working alongside the Hussain family to find a possible match for their son Hussain who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. You can get involved by offering three swabs from the inside of your cheek and completing a registration form. Anyone from age 17-55 in generally good health can sign up. Find the DKMS volunteers outside the East Stand Museum.
