MUSCLING UP FOR ‘MND’
Showing their grit to beat MND
IT’S the event that is set to break records for the most people being personal trained in the one location.
And the QAdvertising Maroochydore team is proudly taking part in the event which doubles as a fundraiser for people living with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Director of QAdvertsing Trevor Larkins said they decided to get involved in the initiative when one of their clients told them about it.
“They wanted to get as

much exposure out there as possible,” he said.
“This client has an uncle who has MND.
“They don’t get a lot of funding for research.”
Muscle Up for MND is an awareness and fundraising campaign aimed at getting the average Australian up and active, and building muscles for those who can’t – people living with MND.
Mr Larkins said he had also been personally touched by MND throughout his life.
“I’ve had a few people I’ve known over the years and within the football circles I’ve been involved with who have been effected,” he said.
“It seems everyone knows someone who has been touched.”
The QAdvertising team said they thought they were all pretty sporty and thought they could put their fitness to the test for the cause.
“It’s a one hour session to try and break the record of the most people being personal trained in the one spot,” he said.
“In a nutshell its 10 stations around the Gabba.
“It could be 50 people or more at each station at a time.”
The current world record, which the event is attempting to break, is 2061 people, held by ironman Guy Leech.
