As we get into the holiday season, we have so many things to be thankful for: good health, fast splits, and great friends! As the fitness community has given us so much over the years, we wanted to do something to give back to the community.

The theme for our December Social will be "promoting fitness and activity in kids." To do that, we'll be having a toy drive to benefit Greater Boston Toys For Tots, to help make sure every kid gets a toy for the holidays. But this won't be a standard toy drive, we want to encourage you to bring a toy that will get kids to be active and play. This could be sports equipment, outdoor games, or any other item that will encourage kids to get outside and PLAY!

We will also raising money to support The Play Ball! Foundation of Boston. The mission of the Play Ball! Foundation is to create and expand team sports opportunities for middle school age urban youth who are at a pivotal time of physical and emotional development.

We hope you can join us in supporting the fitness and healthy-living community that has given us all so much!
