Good Gym wins social innovation camp

Ivo's Good Gym project has won the second ever Social Innovation camp. The project will set up a framework for people to integrate brief visits to isolated older people and the delivery of useful items to good causes/ dependant individuals into their running routes and exercise routines. Over the course of the weekend the project signed up 20 volunteers and fleshed out the concept with a range of older people, doctors and lawyers. The Good Gym team for the weekend included: Rohan Gunatillake, Alice Casey, Ed Whyman, Matt Collins, Tom Taylor and Ana K. The team worked from 9AM on Saturday morning until 2pm on Sunday refining safety issues and developing a solid business model.
