A gym in the historic river port of Goolwa, on the Murray River in South Australia, will bring some muscle to Bravehearts 20th annual White Balloon Day with a two-hour ‘mash-up’ session as part of Australia’s biggest child protection challenge.

FIT Goolwa members will participate in the group fitness launch, to be delivered by a team of personal trainers.

“It’s going to be fun, but high-octane, with proceeds from the mash-up going to White Balloon Day,” says personal trainer and kickboxer Danica Rosser.

“I am a mum of two and passionate about protecting all kids so they can live a life they were meant to live. I love what Bravehearts does to create child-safe communities and educating children about personal safety is so important.”

FIT Goolwa will join thousands of children’s champions across Australia on September 9 in the campaign which invites schools, organisations and everyday people to take Australia’s Biggest Child Protection Challenge at

Money raised throughout the campaign will go towards education and training programs as well as specialist support for kids and their families.

Funds raised in 2015 helped to educate around 106,000 kids with personal safety and support 3750 kids and their families with specialist counselling services.
