Santa Fit is organized by Studio A by FitBird, a fitness centre with members who are not only keen on physical fitness but also in giving back to the community.

Santa Fit aims to raise RM12,000 through the sale of tickets and paintings to support the charity home that houses more than 30 children aged between 10 months and age 16 and old folk.

Registered as Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak-Kanak Miskin & Orang Tua Santhia, Johor Baru Santhia home is run by lorry driver, Ramu and his wife, Saraswathi, with the help of six people.

Since 2004, Ramu and Saraswathi have been taking in children who were orphaned, abandoned at birth or simply left at the doorstep of their single-storey house.

Santa Fit is part of Studio A’s community service programme, Fit to Give, with a long-term mission to improve the home residents’ quality of life.
