You may have read in our newsletter that we’ll be holding a fundraiser to raise money for Donate for Life on Wed 29 April in honour of our good friend and strong mover, Josh Simpson, who passed away almost a year ago.
We want to make this day really special, and are asking for VOLUNTEERS to help make the day a success. Some things we’ll need help with is the running of the Joshy WOD, advertising, food stalls, sponsors, raffles, auctions…and anything else the Joshy WOD Committee come up with! Would you like to help out?
We will be holding a committee meeting THIS SATURDAY 14 March, 9am at the gym to discuss how the Joshy WOD day will run. Anyone who would like to be part of organising this fundraiser is welcome to come along – please let us know if you intend to do so. If you can’t make it on Saturday, but would like to help out, please let us know and we’ll assign you a job. We’ve created a private Joshy WOD Committee FaceBook Group that we can add you to to keep you updated about the fundraiser.
It is with mixed emotions that that we will be hosting the Joshy WOD day at Move Strong Gym on Wed 29 April. It is crazy to think that it has almost been a year since our friend and strong mover, Josh Simpson, passed away. We hope to honour him by smashing out the Joshy WOD on his birthday, as well as by raising money for Donate for Life. Josh donated 5 organs to 4 people when he died, and it is his wife Amanda’s wish to raise awareness of this amazing charity, as well as encourage people to think about organ donation and discuss with family members if something tragic did happen.
Thanks for your support 🙂
