FPCP Fitness in Christ Fundraiser 2021
We're looking forward to your participation in the 4th Annual Fitness in Christ Event to raise funds for the Second Mile Center of Detroit while enjoying healthy outdoor fun and fellowship! This is NOT a competitive event and ALL skill levels are welcome. You may choose to participate in as little or as much as you would like! Families are welcome to participate together but please note, children will be the responsibility of their parents as childcare will not be provided.
IMPORTANT PARTICIPANT INFORMATION:
Events - You may choose to participate in one or more of the five athletic events (Walking, Running, Cycling, a Functional Fitness Class, and/or a Yoga Class) offered on June 12th at 9-11 AM. All events will begin or take place at Helms Haven Recreational Area in Hines Park. The walking, running, and cycling course will be on Edward Hines Drive between Outer Drive and Ann Arbor Trail and closed to vehicle traffic during our event. If there are no available slots left in an event you want to participate in, please contact Kathy Bernard at [email protected] and we'll make room for you!
