WORKOUT FOR A CAUSE AND WIN A FREE MONTH OF CROSSFIT GROUP TRAINING OR MOVE STRONG KIDS CLASSES!*

Are you new to CrossFit? Not a member at Move Strong Gym? Would you like to give CrossFit a try, while also supporting a good cause?

On Wed 29 April 2015 Move Strong Gym (32 Don Rd, Devonport) is holding a fundraiser in honour of one of our members, Joshua Simpson, who passed away, and to raise money for DonateLife. Public welcome to come along to the fundraiser – even complete beginners can do the special CrossFit workout dedicated to Josh. If you’re not feeling up to working out, there’s still plenty to do at the gym – there will be lots of prizes, breakfast and lunch stalls, a BBQ Banquet Dinner, auctions (go here to see what’s on offer so far!), health and fitness stalls, face painting, crazy hairspray, and a jumping castle!

All non-members who come and support the event and make a donation to do the Joshy workout or who donate in other ways (i.e. by purchasing dinner or kids entertainment), will automatically win a FREE month of CrossFit Group Training or Move Strong Kids Classes!*
