Kind sponsor/contributor - Koh SS

Just when we are feeling a little vexed over our poor music system used in our Zumba Gold and received feedback that the current speaker we were using was not loud enough, I was given a really cool and awesome iRiver speaker which is able to play our Zumba songs loud and clear through iPod and iPhone. Just what we need.

The speaker is really good. It is wireless and makes use of bluetooth connection. We do not need to bring out the extension plugs to connect our speaker. On behalf of Get Movin for Charity, we want to give a BIG SHOUTOUT to our kind donor, Koh SS for the great speaker ! The elders are very blessed by his contribution.

Our V's thoughts and views: Shiming

Shiming is passionate about fitness and this is the first time he came to volunteer at our Zumba Gold activity.

Here's what he got to say:

" It is great to see the elderly at this age, able to do something and in fact to be honest, this is the first time seeing such an effective way to get elderly to exercise. The intensity level of Zumba Gold is really good "

Kind sponsor/contributor - Emily Chang

I decided to post entries and give recognition to people who had sponsored and contributed to this movement.

Since the commercement of this volunteering activity back in 2012, I have been receiving alot of help and support from many people whether they are my own personal friends or friends of friends. I am truly thankful for the people whom I met during the course of making this activity possible and now being well-received in the senior activity centres.

I want to give special thanks and credit to our kind volunteer cum Zumba instructor as well as our generous sponsor - Emily Chang. We are very blessed to get to know this fellow Zumba instructor.

Not only did she volunteers to be there with the elders for our events whenever she is free, she is also a generous and kind lady who sponsored the colourful and pretty wrist bands as gifts.

Thank you so much, Emily Chang.
