Here all of the activities linked to the Thrive T-shirts sale:
• 5th April 2017 --> Launch of the Thrive Program when the T-shirts went officially on sale. The key event on that day was the so called "Smoothie Challenge" organized by the Health Provider Irish Life. What does a Smoothie Challenge involve? Individuals race on specially adapted smoothie bikes against the clock or each other to complete a simulated Smoothie Bike Mile. The faster you pedal the quicker you complete the mile and of course the more delicious the smoothie at the end of the race!
• 8th June 2017 --> Creation of a giant Y visible from the sky. Each individual was wearing a purple shirt
Each Purple shirt is hope for the children, and a donation for the orphan girls of Upendo !
