The Little Gym of Summerville will host the first annual TOYS FOR TOTS "Baby Derby" Dec. 8.
The Little Gym is hosting a Fun Run or "Fun Crawl" for infants at 8 a.m. Dec. 8 at their Summerville location at 205F Grandview Drive (next to Sonic and Buffalo Wild Wings).
"The Toys For Tots Baby Derby is an event where parents can bring their 0-14 month child or children to The Little Gym for a 'just-for-fun' crawling race across the Gym all in a safe, warm, nurturing and non-competitive environment," Chris Cannavaro, owner and Gym Director of the Summerville location, said.
The only cost to enter the race is a new unwrapped toy of any value, which will be donated to the Marine Corps Reserve Unit of Charleston. Each child will have their own lane for the race and all children will receive a medal. There will be four divisions: 6 months and under, 7-9 months, 10-12, and 13-14 months.
"It's a great way to start a Saturday morning, with your newest addition and you supporting a great local cause," Cannavaro said. "There will also be lots of refreshments for parents."
The race is purely for fun so actual finishing places will not be recognized. Call 851-2950 or stop by The Little Gym to register your child or just show up on race morning.
The Little Gym offers professionally developed, non-competitive developmental gymnastics, sport skills, karate and dance programs that promote coordination, balance, rhythm and flexibility, as well as enhancing listening, emotional, social and intellectual skills.
