Give a toy, get fit!

Urban Active will conduct its fourth annual holiday toy drive through Dec. 22. Urban Active is partnering with Toys For Tots and Charlotte Fire Department Fire Station No. 32 to provide gifts to needy children and their families just in time for Christmas.

Local Urban Active members and non-members who donate one new unwrapped toy for children from infant to 18 years old will receive the choice of one of the following: a personal training session, a 14-day buddy pass, a free tan/upgrade or a small smoothie.

Now in its 65th year, The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation provides a gift of a new toy or book during the holiday season to needy children. In 2010, Marines distributed toys to more than 7.2 million children.
