The febfast challenge is kicking with a bang this year with two awesome events, febfast coordinator Natalia Albert said today.
“febfast will be hosting a happy hour and a dance class in a fortnight’s time to help hydrate and energise people in preparation for a month off alcohol,” Ms Albert said.
“Come join us at the Wellington Railway Station at 4:30 pm Friday 31 for the febfast ‘Happy Hour’ with Six Barrel Soda and the febfast team!
“Grab a cool non-alcoholic beverage and talk to the febfast team, ask questions, and get all the info you need to sign up before heading home.
“We will also be hosting a free Zumba Dance Class – with popular Zumbaliscious teacher Carolyn Patchell on the 1 of Feb at Frank Kitts Park at 12pm to kick off these 28 days of alcohol free bliss. Great way to have some fun and get this challenge underway.
Ms Albert said that those out of Wellington can still get involved in febfast by taking up the challenge, fundraising and are still in to win most of the prizes!
“We are very excited about febfast this year! New prizes, new cool events and so many people registering,” said Ms Albert
“Participants always get a lot from febfast: they feel healthier, more energetic, they lose weight, and save money.
“February is a great month to recover from the strains the silly season bring.”
febfast encourages people to push pause on alcohol for the 28 days of February to raise funds to help support young people and their families with alcohol and drug problems.
