Celebrated Jamaican track and field star Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce continues to give back to the community, recently staging her annual Christmas treats in Ewarton and her hometown of Waterhouse.
Fraser-Pryce launched her non-profit organisation, the Pocket Rocket Foundation, in 2013, using her success on the track to partner with local and international companies to give back to those in need. The athlete has since used her foundation to broaden her charitable outreach, adding her husband Jason Pryce’s hometown, Ewarton, as a second beneficiary of her annual Christmas treat in 2021.
On Saturday, Fraser-Pryce shared scenes on her Instagram page from the 16th staging of her holiday treat in Waterhouse. The treat was held at the Fesco Football Field on Boxing Day, with children coming out in droves to enjoy the many activities at the event.
In addition to activities such as train rides, bounce houses, an inflatable obstacle course, dance-offs, a rock climbing experience, and merry-go-rounds, the children were also treated to a variety of snacks from Excelsior and Grace Foods. Besides the activities and treats offered during the event, Fraser-Pryce highlighted in her post that over 1,300 bags of goodies were distributed to attendees.
“Over 1,300 bags full of goodies were distributed so everyone could walk away with something to put under the tree. With more rides, more toys, more games, and more energy, we hope that everyone enjoyed this just as much as we did. Big thanks to our sponsors for helping make this all possible!” the sprinter wrote.
Fraiser-Pryce previously staged her Ewarton treat at the Windalco Sports Complex on December 15.
