Tomorrow Peter Dutton, Federal Member for Dickson & Minister for Health and
Minister for Sport, will participate in the Muscle Up for MND World Record attempt
for the Largest Personal Training Circuit session.
The event will held at the Gabba commencing at 9am. Over 1,700 people have
already registered to show their support for Muscle Up, which assists those people
impacted by Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
Mr Dutton said he was looking forward to the event which aims to break the current
record of 2061 people participating in a personal training circuit session.
“There is always a lot of excitement surrounding these kinds of events, but it’s
important that we remember why we are participating,” Mr Dutton said.
“The work and assistance the MND and Me Foundation does plays a major role in
supporting those in our community with Motor Neurone Disease.”
Mr Dutton also said he was looking forward to participating alongside a number of
Queensland’s sporting elite, particularly Trent Grimsey who lives in Mr Dutton’s
electorate and was the recipient of a Dickson Sporting Excellence Award in 2013.
The world record attempt is also being supported by Queensland’s sporting elite

Registration for the event does not close until 5.00pm today so there is still time for
the MND and Me Foundation to become a World Record Holder! Registration costs
$20 per person and all funds from this event go to the MND and Me Foundation to
increase the quality of life for people with MND.
