Set a goal, go the distance & support women with ovarian cancer
We are so excited to announce Fernwood has partnered with Ovarian Cancer Australia (OCA) to raise awareness and share our support for women with ovarian cancer. And the best part, you can show your support too!
Sadly, four women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer every day (Source: Ovarian Cancer Australia). 100% of funds raised will be used to provide more ovarian cancer nurses, giving women with ovarian cancer earlier access to care and invaluable ongoing support.
Set a goal
We all love a good workout, so why not dedicate November to boosting your health, fitness and wellness while also raising money for women with ovarian cancer?
All you need to do is set a goal, track your progress and share your fundraising page with your friends and family so they can donate. Tag @fernwoodfitness and #WorkoutForWomen in your social posts so we can share the love too!
For our friends in Victoria, we'd love for you to be involved too. There are different types of goals you can choose from, so select a goal that best suits you (and is in line with government restrictions in your area).
There are five types of goals you can choose from:
For movement: Set a goal to walk a specific number of steps, or reach a specific distance.
For strength: Set a goal to lift a specific weight within the month.
For connection: Set a goal to attend a specific number of group classes to improve health, and create connections with my Fernwood community.
For wellbeing: Set a goal to achieve greater wellbeing by attending a specific number of yoga, Pilates, and meditation classes.
For change: Set a goal to see a physical change in my body – inside and out.
You can register solo or as part of a team. Select your Fernwood club team from the dropdown menu when you set up your fundraising page on the Ovarian Cancer Australia website.
