The Brave Throwdown Fundraiser

The Brave Throwdown is a fitness competition as well as a fundraiser for the Special Olympics. The fitness competition consisted of 6 drills, 15 different exercises, and 7 teams with 3 people per team. The goal for each team was to do as many reps as they could in order to score the most points. Our duties for this event was to help the athletes stay motivated to accomplish their goal by cheering them on and by doing whatever we could to help make it a little easier for them. Smaller tasks such as wiping up sweat, handing out water, and cheering for them made all the difference. We also assisted those who were counting the reps by writing down the number each team completed. This event was a collaboration with Circle K International, a community service and leadership development organization at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. We are very grateful that they allowed us to join their team to help raise money for such a great organization.
