Join Me To Support The Haven
My name is Danielle Okonta. I am a Dartmouth Class of 2020 graduate. I am also a former varsity-athlete and like many of my counterparts, I benefitted from the support of the Upper Valley community in my academic and athletic endeavors. In return, I would like us all to find a way to support this community in its COVID-19 relief efforts by sweating for good.
I took one of my favorite circuit exercises and created the "Positivity Circuit" to not only spread positivity and optimism, but also benefit The Upper Valley Haven, an organization that serves people struggling with poverty by providing food, shelter, education, service coordination, and other support.
WHEN: August 15th
WHAT: A virtual circuit that expresses and spreads words and phrases of positivity that you choose.

We want to get as many participants as possible because it will translate into more funds for The Haven! Use Instagram, Facebook, email, job/school networks, whatever you can - get to work sharing! When you sign up, you'll get custom share images.
If you would like to get involved, but don't wish to do the circuit, any donations are welcome!
I'm partnering with Positive Tracks for this effort. They have not only helped me organize this event, but will matching up to $100 that we raise for the Haven.
