rsz_1salval_logoSalvation Army Children’s Services celebrates National Adoption Day with a Fit for Family Zumba, Insanity and Yoga-Thon!

Each year, the Saturday before Thanksgiving is celebrated as National Adoption Day with special events planned across the country. While the type of celebration varies, each event focuses on the same goal, to raise awareness about the need for families who are willing to provide a home for the more than 100,000 children in foster care in the United States.

The Salvation Army Children’s Services is participating by offering a FREE event for families called “Fit for Family”. This new event will include Zumba, Insanity and Yoga sessions led by certified fitness professionals, healthy refreshments, free raffles, music and fun for all ages!

Common myths associated with adoption including “It’s too expensive to adopt” and “I work outside the home, I can’t be approved as an adoptive parent” will be debunked and replaced with facts about what it really takes to be an adoptive family. Because every child is “Fit for Family.”

The event will take place on Saturday, November 22, 2014 from 1:00-4:00pm (doors open at 12:30) at Governor Wolf Elementary School located at 1920 Butztown Road in Bethlehem. This is a free event with refreshments for the first 150 participants or while supplies last. Fitness sessions are best suited for children ages 12 and up and activities for children will be offered including face painting and drawing contests. Sign in is required to participate in fitness sessions and begins 15 minutes prior to each session.
