Pirie fitness group Fit Best Babes host Camp Quality bootcamp fundraiser

Port Pirie fitness group Fit Best Babes (FBB) will be holding a charity bootcamp at Memorial Oval this Sunday.

Earlier this month, the group took on Camp Quality's Big Walk for Little Kids to help raise funds and awareness for children facing cancer.

Overwhelmed by the community's support, the group have exceeded their fundraising goal with a total of $2503.

Between the group they have walked 854 kilometres with three members already reaching their 100 kilometre target.

Open to all ages and fitness levels, the charity bootcamp is $10 per person with all proceeds donated to Camp Quality.

FBB founders Jordi McCarthy and Ashe Haldane said they are "so proud" of the group for their efforts.

"We are over our fundraising goal and on track for our kilometres. It's certainly a great feeling," said Mrs McCarthy.

"Our FBB gang is already like a family, so coming together to do this was easy.

"We all have each others back and most of all we have the kids and families in our thoughts the whole time, which makes it easier and pushes us harder.

"Our children are so lucky to have not been effected by this terrible disease and everyday we push that little harder for those beautiful children and their families who are facing this disease

"It will take the burden off families trying to still pay everyday bills while not being able to work due to being with their sick children, it will also help pay medical bills if required and hopefully buy the children some gifts to cheer them up."

Jordi and Ashe are encouraging the community to come along this weekend and support a good cause.

"Please come out and support a very special cause," said Mrs McCarthy.

"Even if it's just to show you support by making a donation or to actually participate in the bootcamp we would really appreciate it and we know the children facing cancer and their families would appreciate it more."

The charity bootcamp will be held at Memorial Oval this Sunday, October 25, from 9.30am to 11.00am.
