I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

We are organising a fundraiser on Saturday the 13th April at The Barbell Project gym in Miranda and would love for you to be a part of it.

Two months ago, my close friends Chris and his wife Holly joyfully welcomed their beautiful baby girl Olivia into the world, reveling in the bliss of new parenthood. However, their world took a sudden turn on February 19, 2024, when Chris received a diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Facing a long and intensive treatment journey, Chris will spend most of the year in the hospital to combat this dreadful disease. 

We are wanting to raise funds for both the Boland family but also to raise awareness and support for those families that are unfortunately going through or have had gone through similar experiences.

Any kind of love and support will be greatlly appreicated but all of us at Peak Recovery - The Collective and The Barbell Project.
