Fit Together in Action June News
FREE EVENT- Rock the Greenway
We are happy to announce our first in-person Fit Together fitness event of 2021. “Rock the Sue Grossman Greenway! A Family Fitness Scavenger Hunt” will have participants searching for special painted rocks hidden along the Sue Grossman Greenway and earning chances at raffle prizes for each of the rocks found and marked on a game card. This event will also highlight some of the fitness equipment located along the trail.
The event will take place on Saturday, June 26, 2021 from 10:00am – 12:00pm. Participants should park at RBC Aircraft Products, Inc., 2788 Winsted Rd, Torrington, CT 06790 and check in at the tent located near the entrance. Players can start and finish at their leisure and can find up to nine different clues to earn raffle tickets. The raffle drawing will take place when the event concludes at 12:00pm.
If you’d like to get involved or have ideas for future Fit Together events you can reach Kim at: firstname.lastname@example.org
