Healthy Funfit Kids Work Out to Raise Monies for St-Jude Hospitalâ€™s Kids
Celia Kibler, Owner of Funfit Says â€œLetâ€™s Get the Kids Involved in their Own Health while Help Othersâ€
Rockville, Maryland (rushprnews) May 10, 2007 â€“ Funfit Family Fitness Center, a family-inclusiveÂ gym is organizing a fundraising event for St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital on Sunday, May 27, 2007 in Rockville, Maryland.
Â The Volunteer Coordinator for this event is Celia Kibler, who encourages every family member to participate but especially the kids. â€This is a great opportunity for kids to get sensitized to the plight of others, while encouraging healthy habitsâ€, explained Kibler.
By allowing the community children to participate and attend this event, not only will parents teach them the meaning of giving but also will help raise funds for children of the world who are stricken with diseases like cancer, AIDS and Sickle Cell Anemia.
Kidsâ€™ participation in this fundraising is a true and timely lesson of compassion and civic duty, since the funds raised during the event will help St. Jude in its ongoing fight against childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded by the late entertainer, Danny Thomas, and based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world.Â
One quality that makes St. Jude Childrenâ€™s Research Hospital exceptional is its non-payment policy toward uninsured family with a sick child.Â Kibler stated, â€œNo family ever pays for treatments not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. I just couldnâ€™t turn them down when they approached me for help raising fundsâ€. St. Jude is financially supported by ALSAC, its fund-raising organization, through events such as the Workout for St. Jude.
Celia Kibler, a childhood obesity expert is well-known in the Maryland and DC community for pioneering all-inclusive fitness programs, including training and nutrition.
