2017 marked the launch of GR8 Girls Challenges all over West Michigan. Now, more than 10 months into the year, Challenges have proven to be a fun, fit and sweaty way to get out and get toned all for a good cause – GRPS Girls’ Athletics!
GR8 Girls – an initiative of GR8 Sports, Great Kids – is dedicated to supporting girls in sports at GRPS. The GR8 Girls Challenge is a monthly challenge to the community to join together for fitness, fun and a good cause. By promoting a fit mind, body and spirit, we help strengthen the next generation of women!
Thanks to participating local gyms and fitness centers, challenges range all over the exercise spectrum. With challenges like kickboxing, Barre, CrossFit, spin and yoga there is an activity for everyone! Because of the generosity of studios around Grand Rapids, the cost of the class will be donated back and the registration fees from each challenge will support the young girls of Grand Rapids Public Schools, who participate in after-school sports!
Participants have commented on the fun and supportive atmosphere, as well as how the challenges have been a great way to try new fitness activities without making a long-term commitment.
GR8 Girls Challenges for the remaining months of 2017 are open for registration!
