In the heart of Ewarton, on Saturday, December 15, the enchanting spirit of Christmas descended upon the Windalco Sports Complex, courtesy of none other than Jamaica's track queen and the queen of giving, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. The Pocket Rocket Foundation, under Fraser-Pryce's guidance, orchestrated a festive treat that made lifetime memories of around 300 children, turning the Windalco Sports Complex into a haven of joy and laughter.
This heartwarming event was made possible by the collaborative efforts of sponsors and the compassionate commitment of Fraser-Pryce herself. What makes this occasion even more special is the connection it has with the roots of the Fraser-Pryce family – Jason Pryce, Shelly-Ann's husband and a native of Ewarton, played a pivotal role in bringing the Christmas magic to his hometown.
For the third consecutive year, the Pocket Rocket Foundation has dedicated itself to bringing holiday cheer to the children of Ewarton. This continuity is a testament to the foundation's unwavering dedication to spreading joy during the festive season and making a positive impact on the lives of the community's youngest members.
Beyond the accolades on the track and the Olympic gold medals, Fraser-Pryce has embraced the role of a true benefactor to her community. The children of Ewarton, who eagerly anticipate this annual Christmas treat, were treated to a day of pure delight, with activities designed to bring smiles and create lasting memories.
Thanks to the generosity of sponsors like Digicel, the Windalco Sports Complex was transformed into a playground of happiness. Bounce-abouts, a rock climbing experience, and merry-go-rounds added a touch of excitement to the day, ensuring that every child could revel in the joy of the season.
"We are very grateful for the support of our sponsors who have made this event possible. It's heartening to see the smiles on the children's faces as they enjoy the festivities," expressed Fraser-Pryce.
In the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce's Pocket Rocket Foundation continues to exemplify the true spirit of Christmas – a season of giving, spreading joy, and creating unforgettable moments for those who need it most.
