A positive Step for Humanity
The recently opened Active zone Gym at the Junior College in Msida, together with the Step by Step Foundation, a philanthropic, therapy-based organisation that helps brain injured children reach their full potential by improving their quality of life, are organising ‘A Step for Charity’ a fund raising marathon weekend in May to help sustain the Foundation’s various needs.
The activity will take place at the Active zone Gym between 7pm on Friday 26th May and noon on Sunday 28th May, when Mass will be celebrated. On Saturday 27th, Martin Farrugia of Active zone, will attempt a 12-hour non-stop exercise-bike marathon, while throughout the weekend, visitors will be able to join the various fitness classes and enjoy professional displays of different sporting disciplines. Popular local artists will provide entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings.
The various activities planned will need maximum co-ordination and synchronisation and the organisers are therefore issuing a call for volunteers to help with the administration. Anyone willing to offer assistance may call Ms Marisa Xuereb on 9945 7171. Moreover, companies or individuals who may wish to offer sponsorship are kindly requested to send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Step by Step Foundation was set up by parents of brain injured children and Mr Kenneth Cremona Caruana, a qualified occupational therapist and child Neuro-Developmenalist. The Foundation has around 40 member children, all with conditions ranging from Cerebral Palsy, Dyslexia, ADHD, Muscular Dystrophy, Dandy Walker Syndrome and several others.
The Foundation has centres in Hamrun, Malta and Gharb, Gozo and is affiliated to The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem - Obedience of Malta. It also has close ties with The Special Rescue Group - Saint Lazarus Corps.
