Kelly Daukontas with Live Well Fitness Health & Wellness Center in Dolgeville has created a non-profit to raise money to help kids stay in sports by purchasing athletic equipment for needy kids.

“We started the Live Well Community Wellness Program last year, which is a non-profit organization that we created when we had our first 5K,” she said.

They purchase “Cleats and various sports equipment for kids that need it. This year was the first time we could do that,” Daukontas stated.

She said that they also take donations from the community, so they have a lot of cleats and shin guards that they were able to re-home. “If we don’t have something that kids need, then we buy it.”

Daukontas said they couldn’t do it without their sponsors, who help make the event happen.
