Families Helping Families 2009

Families Helping Families ... what a rewarding opportunity! Pictured above are a few volunteers from The MAC (where we work as group exercise instructors) for this active start to the holiday season.
Families Helping Families is a non-profit organization that feels strongly that family is an essential factor in the development of children. Their primary focus is meeting the needs of foster families. This year's Christmas Event was held at Hawkeye Downs in Cedar Rapids. A variety of events for the children included pictures with Santa, live reindeer sightings, group exercise (provided by The MAC), face painting, and the list goes on!

Pictured above and below with Cedar Rapids Roller Girls. We had so much fun posing nice for the camera and then they decided to get "roller tough" with me in the photo below. I can't wait to check out their first home bout in April!

One of the children and I catch a photo opportunity with Ricochet ... the mascot for our local hockey team. Join me on January 16th for my appearance to advocate for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and to cheer on the Roughriders as the face off against Chicago!

Pictured below with The Grinch ... he promised to not steal Christmas this year!

One of our local CR Spirits Cheerleaders stopped to say "Hi" after their GREAT performance during the evening.

Pictured below are a group of very talented young ladies at our booth. Look at them go with the hula hoops!!

A crowning moment for this lovely lady after she practiced balancing on our balance discs at our booth. All of the kids did such a GREAT job and we had such an enjoyable evening!
