This is organized by my client, Ann Bailey. She is a good friend of the Principal at Carr Intermediate School in Santa Ana. This is where the families put in their request for help.
Typically there are several children and one parent, rarely two. My family last year was living in a one bedroom apartment. The year before that, my family was living in the garage of another family's home.
The look on the children's faces when we drop off the gifts is priceless.
Many of you assisted last year and there were eleven adopted families in total. I know times are tough, but all the more reason why these families need our assistance.
Here is how it works:
We try to get a pair of pants, a shirt, a sweater or jacket and a pair of shoes for each kid. I try to get these things where they can return them if they are not the right size (like target). I also like to get each child a book and one toy/game/fun. It is important when adopting a family to have the same number of gifts for each child. We wrap the presents and then we deliver them.
We also need to find $200 for a grocery gift certificate for each family. I will work on this, but will also ask all of you to work on it.
Please contact me at LizFitness@gmail.com if you would like to be involved.
Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

a local Iron man Triathlete and running coach here in San Clemente! I am so excited about it! I saw her flyer at the Starbucks in San Clemente, thought about it for a few days, then finally decided to call her. I liked her right away. I knew as soon as I spoke with her and read her blog that I had called the right person.
As many of you know, I enjoy all types of outdoor fitness activites. For some reason though, I have never caught the running "bug".
More than anything right now, I really want to become a true runner!
Although I did run the Vegas half marathon, I didn't really take it too seriously or train very hard for it. But this time, watch out! From now until October For the next 17 weeks, my life will be all about running! I am focused and ready to learn to love running!!!
I will be meeting with the Lois and the group of trainees(which will include my client Dianne and my best friend Louise) 2 times a week as well as doing yoga once a week for my sore muscles. This is all part of the program.
Please check back as I will be blogging about my training experience!
