As a new and proud partnering agency of United Way, Polycultural Mississauga is currently participating in their 2013 Fundraising Campaign - the first of many to come. Led by Rochelle Mairs and Andrea Basic, a team of ambassadors composed of dedicated staff decided on a theme of "Health & Wellness." This theme would drive their week-long campaign with corresponding fundraising activities.
Launching their campaign on Monday, October 7th, the ambassadors started with their kick-off event "Let's Get Physical...ly Active!" This came with a fun aerobic routine and salad bar for everyone to participate and partake in.
On Tuesday, Day 2, an organized "mall walk" for clients and the general public is planned, with participation automatically placing walkers in a raffle for a brand new tablet.
Wednesday's activity places the focus back on staff members, allowing them to participate in a "Workout Around the World," an interactive session including styles such as Zumba, Bollywood, Afrobeats and Yoga.
Thursday would bring the same session, but this time for clients and anyone who wants to break a sweat for a cause! That same day, Polycultural staff will discover the winner of their 50/50 draw, with entries being collected throughout the week.
Friday, October 11th will then bring about the wrap up event, where all employees will be invited again for a brief gathering to be informed of the goal status and personally thanked for their support. This will also be the day the raffle ticket is drawn.
This campaign being their first, Polycultural Mississauga is very excited and anticipates this week's festivities!
