The entire country of Australia has been hit with some of the biggest, deadliest wildfires the world has ever seen. More than 26 million acres have burned; to put it into perspective, that's more than 12 times the size of the devastating 2018 California wildfires. These fires have been burning since September 2019 and still continue today. At least 28 people have lost their lives, more than 2,000 homes destroyed and an estimated half a billion animals affected.
It's times like these where our community must come together to help our fellow friends and family, even those on the other side of the world. We receive so much love from Australia and want to do absolutely everything we can to give back during this dire time of need. As comrades in the fitness community, let's all come together to help the people of Australia dominate those flames.
Barbell Brigade's motto is Dominate Humbly and we're not just talk. Walk the walk with us during our fundraiser for Australian wildfire relief this month. On Saturday, February 22nd, we'll be hosting a massive day of fun events, lifting and good times with the Barbell Brigade community. We'll have special guests along with plenty of competitions like 3v3 Basketball matches, a Firefighter Challenge and more! Don't miss out!
Help us truly live the Dominate Humbly lifestyle by coming out on February 22nd, or donating to our GoFundMe page if you can't make it but would still like to contribute. Page will be active until Sunday, March 1st.
100% of proceeds from guest passes and contributions will be sent to NSW Rural Fire Service.
