Gary Mabbutt walked the equivalent of a mile around Wembley Stadium to promote a local healthy living campaign this week.

With our Champions League home matches being played at the national stadium this season, the Club is supporting the local council’s ‘My Heart Beats for Brent’ campaign, encouraging the Borough’s residents to take up regular physical activity.

As part of the campaign, Brent’s primary schools have been challenged to take on a ‘Daily Mile’ – taking students out of the classroom for 15 minutes per day to get their hearts pumping.

Children in Brent have worse than average levels of childhood obesity, with around 10.5 per cent of children aged 4-5 and 24.1 per cent of children aged 10-11 classified as obese.
