So you’re saying I can get sweaty for an hour, raise money for charity and have fun? Sign me up!!
On January 28th, my colleagues and I had the pleasure of taking part in “Swing it 24” at Movement108 in South Granville. What is Swing it 24 you ask? In partnership with Imagine1day, Swing it 24 had us swinging a kettlebells for 24 hours and raising funds for children’s education in Ethiopia!
Our goal was to raise $500 which was reached and then exceeded! This gave us a great sense of pride going into the event.
Each hour a different team would rotate to swing the kettle bells for an hour. Each team member had the option of swinging for a minute or two before switching over to the next teammate. The big trick was making sure that everything moved continuously. I had the pleasure of kicking it off for our team, think of me as the lead sprinter….in a marathon:) We were also lucky to have the lovely people from Team Slack Swing It with us! With only four people on Team PR, we were getting our sweat on and loving every moment!
The PR TEAM had a blast swinging and we were all sore the next day. Can’t wait for next time Swing it 24!! So many smiles for such a good cause.
Big thanks to the Movement108 team for hosting!
All the love,
