Local Group Successfully Finishes First Year of Operations and Surpasses Expected Goal
Family Fuse has successfully completed its first year of operations as of August 1, 2021. Its team has exceeded their initial goals by supporting 84 Black Canadian parents, guardians, and caregivers and 141 children in the process. In an effort to expand its support to all Black parents, guardians, and caregivers living across Windsor and Essex County, it is hosting its first annual fundraiser called The Movement Marathon. The annual event is in partnership with IncluSV Beauty Solutions, University of Windsor’s LancerREC, and Human Kinetics Society.
The Movement Marathon is an online event for families of all ages, starting September 24th until the 26th. The event takes place over three days featuring 12 events that will take place in 4-hour time slots. Events include Zumba, HITT training, yoga, and more! Participants can sign up individually or as teams and are encouraged to participate in as many events as possible. By donating, contributors will be helping Family Fuse to provide free services to all Black Families, parents of Black children, and allies. Donations can be made by either e-transfer or by cheque. Prizes will be awarded to the highest individual fundraiser and the highest team fundraiser.
“Together we are helping to build unity in the community as Family Fuse and supporters. A community event is exactly what we need to encourage this and although Covid-19 still has a grip on the community, we want to ensure that this online event helps bring people together, gets them moving, setting fitness goals, reduce stress, get people into a park, backyard or indoors, with family and friends,” says Christie Nelson, the Co-Founder and Program Coordinator of Family Fuse.
