Here I was the the Key Center school bright and early on a Sunday! What a fabulous day I had, wonderful way to end the weekend :) MISSION: EXCELLENCE

Today I spent the day volunteering with KEEN greater DC at the Key Center in Springfield VA. KEEN is a national non-profit organization that is run by a committed volunteer corps. The philanthropy of KEEN is to serve disabled children ages 5-19 through a 1-1 mentoring fitness program.

I was incredibly humbled by my experience working with the wonderful children. The laughter, joy, and happiness that exudes from the kids is INCREDIBLE. Not only did I get to spend my time with two incredible kids, but I got my own work out in :) I will definitely be spending some more time here.

If you would like to get involved in commitment-free volunteering and service contact me, or contact KEEN directly to find out what events are going on.

The event was held at the Key Center School located in Springfield VA. There are many opportunities for volunteering at the Key Center, a school fully equipped for the disabled! Without great volunteers, none of this amazing work would be possible!!! I will also be spending some time at the school volunteering my time, join me if you can & I GUARANTEE you will have a fanstastic time :)
