Sweating it out for charity

LUNGING, squatting and jumping on the Selborne College fields was how a number of women spent their Saturday morning in an effort to assist Breath of Life.

Bringing along a donation of items on the Breath of Life wish-list, ladies turned up for a morning of fun, fresh air and exercise in the first “Sweating for Charity” event.

Breath of Life place of safety houses abandoned babies and counsels women in crisis pregnancies across the city.

Group fitness instructors Nadine Hill and Sharon Moulang, said they suggested the “bootcamp” workout idea to coordinator and house mother, Elaine Brenkman of Breath of Life.

“We always wanted to help people keep fit and contribute to charity. We hope to do more events like this in future to help different charities,” Moulang said.

Brenkman said she was delighted by the generosity of those who came along.

“We are so grateful for the support of all these people,” she said.

Gillian Davies, who came to sweat it out for charity said: “Breath of Life is a brilliant cause doing amazing work. It is so good to come outdoors as a community, get fit and remember them”.

Eileen Mauer said she had heard about the event through Moulang and decided to help out and support the worthy cause – and get in some great exercise at the same time. Brenkman said they were in need of Infacare 2 soya formula and fresh fruit and vegetables to feed the children. If you are able to assist in any way, contact Brenkman on 082-487-4406 or drop items off at 2 Dawson Road, Selborne.
