febfast kicked off 28 days of booze free bliss with a bang over the weekend and there is still time to register, febfast coordinator Natalia Albert said today.
“febfast ran a ‘happy hour’ at the Wellington Railway Station on Friday with Six Barrel Soda where we gave out over 1000 delicious beverages to commuters to help raise awareness about febfast,” Ms Albert said.
“On Saturday we held a Zumba dance class with Zumbalicious in Frank Kitts park where about 100 people joined in for an hour of body shaking febfast celebration.
“These were two fun ways we’re trying to spread the message about taking the shortest month off alcohol and fundraising to help young people and their families who are dealing with alcohol and other drug problems,” Ms Albert said.
Ms Albert said that registrations are going strong with almost 400 people registered.
“Registering for febfast is free and it’s still open and will be for the first two weeks of February. So there is no excuse for not signing up. It’s never too late to participate.
