Invite to jump up to support youth

YOU’LL get a burst of endorphins and feel like you’re on top of the world when you sign up for Auburn PCYC’s Star Jump Challenge on offer this month to help raise funds for the PCYC’s life-changing Fit For Work program, which provides young people with a pathway to employment.

All you have to do to take part in the fun, physical challenge is to commit to doing 100 star jumps a day up to and including this Saturday, April 6, from noon when Auburn PCYC will throw open its doors for a come and try gymnastics, soccer and basketball afternoon as well as encouraging attendees to take part in the star jump initiative.
Auburn PCYC manager Alese Keane said the new program was designed to address a young person’s disengagement from their family, education and employment opportunities, to help reduce and prevent their involvement in anti-social behaviour or crime.
“It’s a great initiative and we hope to see a lot of people turn up at our open day to take part as well as trying out a new sport,” she said.
“The Star Jump Challenge is a fantastic opportunity to be a ‘star’ for our young people and if you’re less mobile, you can always modify star jumps to suit your ability.”
