Maguire & McInerney SAVVY Survivor Season 26 is a 7-day fitness festival all about raising money for Parkinson’s Disease research. This year we have teamed up with Illawarra North Parkinson’s NSW Support Group and University of Wollongong “Parkinson’s Molecular Insights of Parkinson’s Disease” research project to bring awareness to the local community of the issues facing people living with Parkinson’s disease.
Survivor is SAVVY’s biggest and most anticipated event of the year and is set to raise thousands of dollars for its selected charity. This year it takes place on the 10 – 16 December.
Each day across the event, there will be a range of sessions available for participants to attend. Sessions are a mix of SAVVY’s most popular classes, with a fun and exciting twist. The goal is to come to as many sessions as possible (whether it’s one session a day, or two or three) to raise valuable points for your team.
The official Survivor timetable has now been announced and includes an action-packed array of classes and fundraising opportunities. Download the timetable below, and scroll down for class descriptions and a list of our sponsors.
