Turning the pub crawl into a gym crawl. That’s the brain child of local fitness expert Ashley Bird, who is spearheading a new initiative to get the community moving while raising money for a good cause.

The Ultimate Gym Crawl Muskoka takes place later this month. Bird says participants will travel around to four different gyms to try and be crowned as the winner.

All of the money raised is going into the Children’s Foundation of Muskoka, and Bird says the idea was sparked from past fitness experiences.

She says she picked the non-profit based on being a new mom and all of the services it provides for the community. CFM provides funding for kids for recreational, medical or emotional needs.

The event is taking place on September 30th starting at 9:00am. The challenge will wrap up around 12:30pm and then there will be a small health and wellness expo afterwards. Anyone interested in taking part can message Bird on the Ultimate Gym Crawl Facebook page or by emailing ashley@thebarbelles.ca.
