«I’m so excited to be partnering with Crunch and ThirdLove for this special 40th anniversary of Physical,» said Olivia Newton-John. «Both brands fit perfectly for ‘getting physical’ and I’m thrilled that they are helping raise money and awareness for my ONJ Foundation Fund, a fund supporting pioneering research into plant medicine for cancer.»
«At Crunch, we provide our members with more than just a fitness experience. We’re a diverse community that seeks to encourage, empower, entertain to help others live a better life,» said Jim Rowley, CEO Crunch Worldwide. «That’s why we are thrilled to be partnering with Olivia and the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFF) to help raise money for research to fight cancer. Unfortunately, there is a high probability that cancer will impact everyone at some point in their lives, either directly through a diagnosis or indirectly through a friend or loved one. My mother passed from cancer, so the importance of this partnership touches home for me.»
