Fernwood Fitness has aligned with RizeUp Australia, a charity furnishing new homes for families affected by domestic violence.

Fernwood has joined forces with RizeUp in two home set ups to date, and all Fernwood clubs have committed to donating a portion of their onboarding fees in the month of July.

Diana Williams, founder and managing director of Fernwood Fitness, said “It was a wonderful feeling being involved in a home set up. I didn’t realise how emotional it would make me feel until I came in and started seeing all the beautiful things that we put around the home, making it feel so warm and loving for the family to come in and enjoy all of these things selected specifically with their interests in mind.” 

The ongoing collaboration with RizeUp reflects Fernwood’s mission to empower women to shine.

CEO RizeUp Australia, Nicolle Edwards said the national long-term partnership with Fernwood Fitness will help extend the charity’s support to thousands more women and children.

“This partnership marks a significant step towards raising awareness and supporting women and their children fleeing domestic and family violence by providing the practical support they need to create a new home.”

Many Fernwood clubs around the country are holding fundraising events to further drive monetary and physical goods donations. Every donation made helps make a difference to the lives of those impacted by providing a fresh new beginning for families in need.
