Center Combines Well Aware with Foundation Donations

August 20, 2012

These teachers at the Superior Children’s Center in Farmington, MO, successfully completed a fitness challenge while raising funds for the Foundation.

Center Director Nicki Ballew was so inspired by the Walk/Run at the Leadership Conference this year that she challenged everyone to participate in a physical activity – walking, running, biking, etc. – for 25 hours. Employees signed a commitment page, and for each hour of activity, Nicki pledged $.25 to the Foundation (up to $100).Everyone that completed the 25 hours, also got a special T-shirt Nicki purchased.

“We are a small staff and it was a voluntary commitment so not everyone committed, but the ones who have done a GREAT job,” said Nicki. “I am so excited that they are exercising and raising their awareness to health!”
