Alex Ivanoff, the owner of Anytime Fitness in Southport and Maghull, with Owen Copland

A Family Fun Day takes place from midday this Saturday (23rd October) to raise money to fund treatment for a 21-year-old man with an aggressive brain tumour. 

The event takes place at the Maghull Community Association hall, on Green Lane, Maghull, to raise funds for local man Owen Copland. 

There will be a whole host of fun, including: reptile show, singing princesses, bouncy castle, DJ, balloon artist, lucky dips, tombola, raffles, food, sweets, bar with alcohol, hot drinks, cakes, mascots and more. All are welcome. 

The event is being organised by Owen’s family including his Mum, Gill, sister, Jane, and Dad, Ken, in association with the Maghull Community Association.

Last year, at only 20 years old, Owen Copland was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an aggressive type of brain tumor and was told he only had four days to live.

After diagnosis Owen was left bed-bound and began to lose mobility throughout his body.

Alex Ivanoff, who runs the Anytime Fitness gyms in Southport and Maghull, and his team wanted to help so have been regularly working with Owen to set him challenges and get his muscles functioning again. 

With his sheer determination and positive outlook they have been able to get him out of his bed into a chair and going out on day trips. He’s even been able to come and visit them at the gym. 

Earlier this month they raised over £5,000 through a charity Speed March. 

Doctors were not willing to provide treatment for Owen up until recently but after seeing the progress he has made both physically and mentally they have now offered him chemotherapy. Owen and his family are now hoping to be able to travel to Germany in order to receive what could be life saving treatment. 

People are being urged to donate and support the appeal through the Help Owen fight Glioblastoma – Fundraiser Go Fund Me page here

Alex Ivanoff said “Our goal is to raise awareness for Owen and Glioblastoma and to raise money to get him to Germany for what could be life saving treatment which is unavailable to him on the NHS. Please keep sharing and donating to our Go Fund Me page so we can get Owen there!”
