After working double shifts as a waiter at Oceana Restaurant Mondays through Thursdays, Fitness Partner Pedro Goncalves donates his time every Friday to volunteer for Wellness in the Schools. A master of Eagle Claw Kung Fu, Pedro teaches students and their families at our weekly Family Fitness Fun Nights across NYC. Having first come across Kung Fu in the 1980s, Pedro has been working on perfecting this martial art for more than 30 years. He learned from his grandmother that “without work, there is nothing, and sometimes life is not just about the work you do for yourself but the work you do to help others.” He has truly embraced this motto by working on his days off to help empower kids and families at our schools. “You need a big heart, and a giving heart, to be working for an organization like WITS. I’m glad I can volunteer and be a part of this amazing movement.” For more on Pedro, check out our Spring 2018 Newsletter feature.
