Salmon Arm’s Bulldogs Boxing supplements training schedule with food challenge

Fitness and boxing business adds food bank fundraiser to fitness routine

Although Bulldogs Fitness & Boxing Centre’s HIT2FIT Roaring 20’s Gala was postponed because of COVID-19, the fitness and fun continues.

Participants have remained in training in a modified way through virtual classes. They’ve also been assigned challenges, the most recent being a food bank fundraiser.

Each participant was to set out a box or basket by their front door every morning during the week and bring it in during the evening. They were to place a call-out to friends and families on social media to fill the basket. Bonus points were awarded to those who were able to ‘catch’ (on camera) their gift-bearing friends. while waving thanks through the window.

They were equal to the challenge. Along with food, $1,065 in donations was raised.
