S.O.S Soap Pads by Clorox are celebrating their 100 year anniversary and we have some freebies to give a special FiDi Families Insider! The contest will end Wednesday, April 19th at 3:00pm . The winner will be announced 24 hours after the contest ends. Good Luck!
We hope to see all of our FiDi Families at this special charity event even if it is out of the hood! During this event kids will have fun running around playing the game of gaga and all money will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of NYC.
What is gaga? Gaga is a fast paced, high energy sport played in an octagonal pit. The more players the better! Somewhat like dodgeball, the game is played with a soft foam ball, and combines the skills of dodging, striking, running, and jumping, while trying to hit opponents with a ball below the knees. Players need to keep moving to avoid getting hit by the ball. Fun and easy, everyone gets a serious workout.
