DEDICATED TO FITNESS (d2f) has been a regular fundraiser at Bathurst’s annual Relay for Life but this year they will bring a new initiative to help raise money for cancer. 

Labelling it as d2f Cleans up Cancer, the gym is asking all members and any generous members of the public to bring all there empty glass or plastic bottles up to the gym and deposit them in its recycling bins. 

Once collected, the gym will deposit them in one of the many Return and Earn locations across Bathurst and money made will go towards d2f’s grand total for Relay for Life. 

d2f’s Bev Glen is hoping the community strongly supports the initiative.

“It’s such a simple way to cash in. People always toss away their juice or water bottles,” she said.

“This new initiative is great. We were throwing out money before. 

“Our goal is to make $8000. That would be awesome but it gets harder each year. 

“You can sign up on the Relay for Life website or you cam join our team to donate.” 

d2f’s usual push-up challenge returns – the 2018 D2F Relay for Life Community Push Up Challenge – and details can be found on its Facebook page.

Participants are encouraged to do 30 push-ups (knees or toes) for 30 days and to set aside a gold coin each day. 

Businesses can also sponsor a spin bike for $150 and it will have its logo displayed on the front of the bike. 

Spin classes will also be held, costing $10 per person and will run at 3pm, 4pm and 5pm on the Saturday of the Relay for Life event.

A boot camp will also be held on the Sunday morning at the event and for $10, anyone can participate.

The boot camp will consist of three d2f trainers putting participants through a punishing workout. 

d2f has currently raised $848 so far, while the Bathurst and District has currently raised $10,377.19 of its grand target of $100,000.
