SILVER SPRING, Md. - A local organization in Montgomery County is hoping to get the community involved in fitness and raise money for a cause with the new event.
The instructors at "Club Fit" in Montgomery County provided Zumba, yoga, and bootcamp sessions.
Every year Empower Through Play organizes a mission trip to help children in need that live overseas. The organization provides shoes through local donations while empowering the youth to live healthier lifestyles.
"Were going on a mission trip to Columbia, were bringing sneakers and cleats and donating physical education equipment so that way we can empower those kids" said Charles Yinusa, founder of Empower Through Play.
The organization is also accepting shoes and sports equipment for donations.
