On May 28, 2015, the Peach Bottom NAYGN chapter held its annual Fitness Day. The event included a 5K run/walk around the cooling towers and a 3-on-3 basketball tournament.
This year, the money raised at the event went to Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of York County, PA. The goal of BBBS is to find mentors and match them with children in order to make a positive impact on and empower them to succeed. A goal was set early to raise $5,000 dollars for 2015, which was $1,800 more than last year. That goal was not only met, but exceeded – $5,142 was raised! This money will be able to sponsor five children in the program for a year.
Fitness Day is Peach Bottom NAYGN’s major charitable event which required a lot of planning, coordination, and teamwork. None of this would have been possible with the help of the activities committee and event volunteers!
