Why did I FINALLY take the leap & join the ACTIVEx Charity Challenge??
It's only taken me 3 years to join the AxCC but I joined this year because I cannot imagine a world where a kid isn't able to participate in sports. I have a 13-year-old brother who loves basketball & gets so much joy from it. Growing up I remember going to basketball games to cheer on my friends & family. Sports was a huge part of my life growing up. Being in the stands with everyone else rooting for your team, there's no other feeling like it!!
Kids in the Game is an AWESOME charity that helps underprivilege boys & girls PLAY sports. Sports teaches kids so many valuable lessons such as teamwork, dedication, sportsmanship & learning how to not always win. Winning is great but learning how to lose graciously, take a mistake then learn from it & how to work with others towards a common goal are skills kids can take with them forever.
Another reason I joined AxCC10 was to step outside of my comfort zone. I have always wanted to be a runner & compete in a 5K. What better way to do it than to support an awesome charity?!? Running helps me relax and helps me manage my anxiety naturally. Being completely physically exhausted after a hard run has become the most relaxing part of my day.
