The Challenge For Charity
|Charity for Children's Cause|
A word that comes to mind is the word challenge, particularly the challenge to benefit a cause or charity for children.
I'm picking out a challenge to inspire me to push myself to fitness. I am joining a 7-day challenge from my Facebook group. We are a bunch of ladies who would like to inspire each other to eat well and exercise. This group is lead by Kate. You can ask to be added to this closed group here.
Other words that are in my mind are charity and cause that I use interchangeably. This time around, I am raising funds for The World Fit For Children (or teens). I sync my Fitbit steps to it to count towards my goals/miles.
Others can help by donating for the participants or walkers like me. The funds go directly to the cause. I am thinking, my fitness activity will help me meet my challenge and goals of donating to the cause of my choice. That's hitting two birds with one stone!
My child, of course, is always on my mind. Her name starts with the letter C too. I encouraged her to try to join the youth group for 7-12th graders in our new church (non-denominational) which Sunday mass we both like. She went with her friend tonight so I was hoping she has at least one person she knows.
Well, they asked me to pick them up early. They did not feel welcome there. Nobody sat with them and they felt unfit to be there. Oh well. They tried. They still want to go to the same church for Sunday mass so that's okay.
What can I say? At least they checked the youth group out.
And then I asked, “Does that mean you are not going to their pizza pool party next week?”
“I'm not sure. Maybe I will.”
Hmm . . .
