Santa’s Workout for Water collects food for local food bank

December 21, 2017

Santa’s Workout for Water took place for the first time this past December. The event raised awareness for the need of clean water for a billion people across the globe. In these communities, often it is the children who have to walk to find water, usually the girls of the family. This limits their access to education.

Students began by sharing the WHY behind the event, followed by a warm-up. The participants then went through 12 stations — each station decorated in the theme of the 12 days of Christmas. Participants were given small bells to attach to their shoes so that they can “jingle” while they exercised.

Participants of Santa’s Workout for Water were asked to bring a can of food in addition to registration. The food was donated to Sources, the local food bank.
