The fitness superstar has offered himself as a date for the evening to the highest bidder. The lucky winner gets both Steve and a Ball ticket, if they don’t have one already. Local charity Our Kids gets what it hopes will be a sizeable donation.
Commando Steve’s super-intensive 90-minute bootcamp is arranged by local Nine12 Fitness Centre and will be held at Oakes Oval, at a cost of $190.00. Gates open from 8.00 am, with $5.00 entry fee for all spectators. Proceeds will go to Our Kids.
The Lismore event will include a meet and greet with the ex-Army legend as well as photo and autograph opportunities.
“Commando Steve’s reputation precedes him, and this is a great opportunity to train under his guidance,” said Jason Windsor, Nine12 co-owner.
“Steve is one of the fittest athletes in world and has competed in the Crossfit Games. To have such a calibre of athlete in Lismore is a unique opportunity for those who love their training, and there’s the added boost of helping a great local charity,” Jason said.
In addition to Nine 12 Fitness Centre, generous sponsors for Commando Steve’s ‘Tour of Lismore’ are Northcoast Wholesale, Sailfish, Bank of Queensland, R. Gordon & Son Real Estate, Boost Juice, The Northern Star and Snap Fitness.
The Our Kids Winter Ball is at the Lismore Turf Club on July 20 with a 6.00 pm start and a Black Tie dress code. To bid for a ‘Date with the Commando’ head to www.ourkids.org.au or the Our Kids Facebook page. The highest bid will be seated next to Commando Steve at the Ball. Bids close 12 July at 5.00 pm.
“Even if you’re not up to the Commando Steve’s Bootcamp, accompanying him to the Ball is a great way to raise funds for Our Kids,” said the Northern Star’s Regional Product Sales Manager Heather Williams.
Our Kids Fundraising Coordinator Rebekka Battista added, “Having Commando Steve in Lismore is an amazing opportunity for people to get valuable fitness advice, or bring the family along to watch.”
Our Kids raises funds for Lismore Base Hospital’s Children’s Ward and Special Care Nursery to buy equipment to help keep children local when needing medical care.
