Ringwood-based fitness brand House of Chunk will launch Chunkfest on Saturday, June 24, at Poole Stadium where disabled and able-bodied athletes will compete against each other in strength events.
The event, touted as the first hybrid sports and music festival in Europe, will also raise money for Dorset charity Diverse Abilities.
Chunkfest will also feature MMA and boxing displays and demonstrations of wheelchair rugby and boxing. There will be live DJs throughout the day, a variety of food stalls, and exhibitors from across the country showcasing fitness kit, as well as health and rehabilitation products.
House of Chunk founder Tim Bevington said: “As a brand we realised there was no one out there in our industry actively trying to promote and encourage the adaptive industry, specifically where able-bodied and disabled athletes compete against each other. A lightbulb moment struck and we decided to create ChunkFest, this incredible event is the first in Europe.”
“We are really excited to bring this event to Poole and to be able to raise money for local charity, Diverse Abilities.”
