Fitness and Kisses

Sarnia-Lambton where do we start? You’re amazing! Noelle’s Gift of Fitness 2016 raised a slight kiss over $66,000. Thank you to all the donors, participants and volunteers! Kaoss Studios -3032 Kaoss Studios -3053 Kaoss Studios -2911

This past weekend two amazing and community involved individuals ‘tied the knot’. They kicked the traditional clinking of the glass to the curb. Instead of forcing kisses during their wedding dinner at Sarnia Golf and Curling Club; they chose to have a Kiss Jar with donations going to Noelle’s Gift. They informed us that the larger the donation the more passionate the kiss was. They donated $470 towards helping kids ‘grow up great’ with a simple kisses. We know there were a few red bills – we will let you do the math on the length of those kisses 🙂

The Boys Are Back In Town

The fact is these two young ‘fellas’ never left Wallaceburg! They have always been there with positive attitudes to grow up the best they could be. They lacked necessities, but now have the extra personal tools they needed to grow stronger than ever before!

Brennan has about four teachers at AA Wright Public School in Wallaceburg, Ontario. Actually he only has one teacher. The other three teachers are chasing him in his new wheelchair, because they can barely stop his ambition and current enthusiasm-being mobile!

When Remi responded with “I want to be able to bring homework home like all of the other students” we saw he was just as ambitious as Brennan. Now that Remi has his new braille machine he is going to be the best student he can be. He always fit in, but now he can be excited to get home and learn after school just like his peers.

Brennan “ride with the wind behind you” and Remi “teach everything you learn”.

This is your impact Sarnia-Lambton. Your to thank!

Gift of Fitness 2016

Thats a wrap!

We started Noelle’s Gift of Fitness 2016 with sunrise Yoga under the Bluewater Bridge. Six venues hosted fitness-forward fun in the early morning to mid afternoon and six exciting activity stations took place for kids at Canatara Park mid afternoon too. Runners of all ages finished the afternoon off running/walking in the beautiful sunshine. The tradition continued with Yoga stretch and relax at 3pm followed by the epic after party at Norm’s Pub & Grill later in the evening.

Everything above concluded another remarkable year for us.Thank you to all our donors, venues, participants and to our community as a whole.

Thank you once again Sarnia-Lambton!

Next NY Shoe Fashion Designer

Kaoss Studios -1224

Lexi’s friends and family always joke that she would move to New York to become a shoe fashion designer when she gets older. She always had a love and passion for shoes; she already owns hundreds of pairs of shoes for any outfit she needs for the special occasion.

Kaoss Studios -1209

On Sunday April 17, 2016 Lexi turned sixteen years old. She has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. Her slogan is “shoes matter, just ask Cinderella”. Beyond shoes Lexi bowls every Saturday with Community Living and has for the last seven years, so what better place to celebrate her sweet-sixteen than Marcin Bowl.

Lexi wanted her friends and family to provide shoes for children in need, so kids could put miles and miles on a pair of running shoes, splash in summer puddles with sandals or even a nice pair of flats.

Lexi’s request for no gifts and only shoes to be gifted was successful with 82 pairs of shoes. Way to go Lexi you’re a Smash Hit!

Thank you for your generosity,

Air Time – Flash of Fitness

As much as we long for warmer spring weather; a sunflower will still blossom mid-summer and that can’t be rushed, so for now we’re in ‘air time’ until that touch of warmth relieves us from the soft winter we just had. Sunflowers are destine to reach the sky very soon.

Speaking of air time; TV Cogeco will be flashing our upcoming Noelle’s Gift of Fitness annual event from April 11th – April 16th on their Sports File. The show airs Tuesday @8pm, Wednesday @9pm and Friday @6pm and 9pm.
