SECRET Harbour resident Adam Woods loves family, footy and the gym.

He has combined all of his passions into a fundraiser to raise money for motor neurone disease (MND).

His wife Janice said her stepmother Vicki Sheridan passed away last year after a brave fight with MND.

On June 11, a Big Freeze for MND is at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

“It’s a cause close to our family but it’s also to help find a cure to help other families,” Mrs Woods said.

While Mr Woods won’t be attending the Melbourne fundraiser, he will be holding a Deadlifts for Dollars event at Anytime Fitness in Secret Harbour.

“This involves me deadlifting 80kg through the entire game on the Queen’s Birthday clash between Melbourne and Collingwood at the MCG,” Mr Woods said.

“From siren to siren, as much as humanly possible, using the game breaks as rest periods.”

All money raised will be donated to fight MND.

Mr Woods has raised $5000 for the event.
