Gym owner 'elected' to exclusive girls' club

MARIA Stegeman is part of an exclusive girls' club.

The Gatton's Curves gym owner has been recognised by the Cancer Council Queensland as one of the state's top 100 Girls' Night In hosts.

Ms Stegeman earned the title of Girls' Night In VIP after getting her girls together last year to raise vital awareness and funds for women's cancers through the Cancer Council Queensland campaign.

"I have a few cancer survivors who attend my gym and they are so inspirational to the rest of the women," she said.

"These women are so strong and they deserve all the support they can get.

"We girls need to stick together in the fight against women's cancers because every bit of money gets us one step closer to finding the cure."

Last year her Girls' Night In and other fundraising brought in more than $1400 to support the Cancer Council. This year Ms Stegeman is coming on board again with bigger and better plans for her fifth Girls' Night In event.

The event will be hosted at Curves Gatton on Saturday, November 3. Tickets can be purchased for $5 from Ms Stegeman by phoning 5462 4645.
