The Computing Center was pleased to be one of the sponsors of a "Moment of Movement" on Saturday September 26th at the Ithaca Tompkins International Airport that was held outside on the tarmac. Trudy Baum, spouse of Computing Center Founder, Larry Baum, joined popular FLX Fitclub instructor Chantelle Farmer and her team of senior instructors (Jenny Henion, Jessica Kerns, and Carrie Susskind) along with over two dozen participants from all over our community. Moment of Movement supports our community as parents and caregivers re-enter the workforce during COVID-19 and children migrate back to school.
The money raised goes towards the Ithaca Youth Bureau and the United Way of Tompkins County. These two important organizations successfully serve the needs of youth, parents, and caregivers in our community. We all know that childcare and other youth activities are incredibly important as our community recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and people return to work.
The airport worked with the Tompkins County Health Department to make sure all abided by NYS Guidelines for the in-person attendees. All exercise mats were placed 10+ feet apart. And with the nice breeze and beautiful weather, it was incredibly nice to be outside with many friends from around Ithaca.
The goal is to raise $100,000 collectively for the Ithaca Youth Bureau and The United Way of Tompkins County, both organizations will allocate the funds where they are needed most for programs and services that support our youth, parents, and caregivers in our community.
