In October, my children’s school hosted a traditional jog-a-thon to help raise money for all the PTA programs that they put on including the science lab, new technology, lunch with the principal, family fun nights, an annual camp out and more. This year our goal was to raise $25,000! It was a big undertaking, but we knew we could do it with the help of our local community and business leaders.
So as VP of the PTA this year, and as a local blogger, I reached out to my friends at AquaBall and they donated over 500 bottles of water for the jog-a-thon. What’s AquaBall, you may ask? It is a sugar-free, preservative free, naturally flavored water your kids will love. All of the children at our school sure did!
What I appreciate most about AquaBall is their story. The founders created AquaBall out of the desire to do right for children’s health. After surveying the beverage industry, they realized that most, if not all children’s beverages, contained an excessive amount of sugar and calories. They wanted to create an alternative great-tasting drink for kids that made a difference in the world by attempting to end the trend of childhood obesity and diabetes. What’s best, is that AquaBall is not only free of preservatives, sugar, artificial flavors and colors, but it is a good source of vitamins B3, B5, B6, and C.
During the jog-a-thon, our children ran for 15 minutes. One child even ran over 50 laps! By the end of the race, all of the kids were exhausted and sweaty. They needed to be rehydrated immediately.
That’s where AquaBall came in. Each child got a snack and a bottle of water provided by the company.
Some of the comments I heard from the kids about the water were “What is this drink? I like it!” and “Is there anymore?” Afterwards, my daughter told me that she liked berry frost flavor the best, while my son enjoyed fruit punch. AquaBall is also available in grape and strawberry lemonade flavor.
AquaBall is available at most retailers across the country including Costco and Sam’s Club.
So a big shout out of “thanks” to AquaBall for your timely donation. We truly appreciate your support of our local school.
