A FITNESS-loving teenager with Down syndrome is raising funds for a national charity set up by his mum.
Tom Enoch from Leamington is teaching online workouts for 21 days until Sunday (March 21), which is World Down Syndrome Day.
Money raised from the sessions will be donated to Positive about Down syndrome, a charity set up by his mum Nicola. It provides support and advice to expectant and new parents of a baby with Down syndrome.
The 16-year-old has so far raised some £1,000.
Tom and his sister Emily, age 20, have been delivering online fitness sessions to friends and other young people with Down syndrome since the first lockdown. The youngest has been nine-years-old and the oldest is Tom’s 84-year-old nan.
He plans the sessions himself and mum Nicola says his unique sense of humour means people will have a good workout and a laugh.
The West Bromwich Albion fan has been a member at Stoneleigh-based Cross Fit Faber for two years.
Coach Jack Hill said: “Tom is a part of our community. He is an athlete that loves to be challenged at the gym and we are very excited to see him share his passion with the world.”
