In this week’s team highlight we wanted to thank two very different teams for signing up!
Coloplast is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of stoma care products. As a company they have really embraced what the Stoma 66 challenge is all about and we have had over 100 members of their staff sign up. It’s fantastic to see such a prominent stoma care company getting involved and we hope that staff and customers will see a benefit from incorporating exercise into their everyday.
This team was set up by a husband and wife. Ruairidh suffered from ulcerative colitis for 4 years. “This severely affected his quality of life, we couldn’t even go for a walk as we didn’t know when he would need the toilet. Since having his colostomy bag fitted in June he has come on leaps and bounds.” They wanted to start a team with their family to raise awareness of what stoma surgery is, and show that for many people suffering from Crohn’s and colitis, it may mean a better quality of life.
