The University of Porto really has some of the best ideas for giving back and helping out this season.

The event "Atividade física por uma causa" ["Physical Activity for a Cause", free translation] is the motto for a worthy initiative: you take part in the UPfit Programme for free and in return you give goods that will help those on need. 

The event is organised by the Sports Centre of the University of Porto (CDUP-UP), and it runs from 25th November till 2nd of December.

This is the seventh edition of such a worthy initiative and the entire community is invited to join in.

This event also aims at helping the children at the Associação Criança e Vida and to doing that "one just needs to show up at CDUP-UP - in the Faculty of Sports (FADEUP), CDUP-Boa Hora or Pavilhão Luís Falcão and donate goods, such as school material, puzzles, diapesrs, shower gel, shampoo, electric kettle, Disposable cleaning cloths, Disinfectant wipes or moist wipes, just to mention a few. In return you'll be granted a UPfit free session.

The last day of this initiative is marked with a mega Yoga class, which will take place at CDUP-Boa Hora, from 6.30pm to 8pm.
