Lift­ing his game to raise funds

Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

SE­CRET Harbour res­i­dent Adam Woods loves fam­ily, footy and the gym.

He has com­bined all of his pas­sions into a fundraiser to raise money for mo­tor neu­rone disease (MND).

A fam­ily mem­ber, Vicki Sheridan, died last year af­ter a brave fight with MND.

On June 11, Mr Woods will be hold­ing a Dead­lifts for Dol­lars event at Any­time Fit­ness in Se­cret Harbour.

“This in­volves me dead­lift­ing 80kg through the en­tire game of the Queen’s Birth­day clash be­tween Mel­bourne and Colling­wood at the MCG,” he said.

“From siren to siren, as much as hu­manly pos­si­ble, us­ing the game breaks as rest pe­ri­ods.”

All money raised will be do­nated to fight MND.

Mr Woods has raised $5000 for the event.
