The Fargo Park District, Courts Plus Community Fitness, Family Wellness and the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties are teaming up to help encourage activity in the community with Fargo On The Move, a week of free activities and events. Whether you’re just starting to be active or have been for years, these events will be perfect for you and your family!
“We’re incredibly excited to team up with these outstanding organizations and welcome them to our parks,” said Joel Vettel, Executive Director of the Fargo Park District, in a press release. “We hope that this week of activities and events demonstrates that there are easy and fun ways to be active. If you’re finding yourself struggling to switch up your own routine, we want to showcase that there are different ways to move.”
Community events are happening at a different park each day from June 11-15. Also, anyone who mentions “Fargo On The Move” will get free access during those four days at Courts Plus Community Fitness, Family Wellness, Fercho YMCA and Schlossman YMCA. Just bring a photo ID.
Organizers are randomly giving away sweet prizes to those people who use #FargoOnTheMove on social media to show how they’re being active this summer. To learn more, visit FargoParks.com.
