What is GRIT?
LES MILLS GRIT offers three, alternating 30-minute workout formats, that provide the ultimate cross-training platform:

Make Back to School Bright! Volunteer for YMCA Bright Beginnings
Each year in the days leading up to the first day of school, YMCA volunteers take children who would otherwise not be prepared back to school shopping. This year, about90 underprivileged children from several area elementary schools will go back-school-shopping through the Jerry Long Family YMCA Bright Beginnings Program. The children are also provided with a new, donated backpack stuffed with essential school supplies.
Many of us remember picking out a brand new backpack, outfit and purchasing supplies to get ready for the first day of school each year. Parents struggling to make ends meet cannot provide that experience, but we can still help children start the school year ready for success and make back to school special. Each year, the Y works with the staff at local Elementary Schools to identify the students who are most in need.
This year’s Bright Beginnings is taking place Tuesday, August 11.
Community members can get involved in YMCA Bright Beginnings by donating and volunteering. Call 336.712.2000 and ask for Jordan DuBois or shoot him an email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info about how you can help!
We also need your help collecting the following supplies to fill our backpacks. Any items that you are able to provide would be greatly appreciated!
Box of 24 Crayons, Glue Sticks, Pack of #2 Pencils, Box of Tissues, Box of Washable Markers, Pencil Pouch (Zippered or Box), Composition or Spiral Note Book (Wide Ruled), Pocket folders – Solid Colored, Hand Sanitizer, 3×5 Index Cards, Box of Zip-lock Bags (quart or gallon), 1” – 3 Ring Binders, Colored Pens or Highlighters, 5 Subject Spiral Notebooks (Wide Rule with Tab Dividers)

Nutrition Tip of the Month
Balance your Lunch with Brenner FIT
Eating lunch is very important for everyone. Lunch re-energizes our bodies and keeps our metabolism active throughout the day. When packing a balanced lunch for yourself or for your child, aim for three to four food groups. An example of a balanced lunch would be chicken salad with crackers, baby carrots and grapes. Having a mixture of three to four food groups helps to fill our tummy up and last until the next meal! Join Brenner FIT’s dietitian, Katie Maxey, to learn more about preparing a Balanced Lunch.
Charity Of the Quarter
Teachers are the lifeblood of our education system. And they need our support! Donate new and slightly used classroom supplies and materials to the Educator Warehouse, where teachers in Forsyth County can shop for these items at no cost of their own. The Warehouse relies entirely on donations and is supported by the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, PTAs, and the Forsyth Education Partnership. For more, click here.
