Allendale’s 5th Annual Family Fitness Frenzy is revving up to once again promote health, an active lifestyle, and general wellness in the community. With activities planned from 9 am – noon this Saturday, March 16, families will enjoy the freedom to come and go at a pace that best fits their schedules.
Parent Volunteer Coordinators Wendy Williams and Melissa Fennell have worked tirelessly for months, along with with a team of parent volunteers, to put together a memorable — and meaningful — event for all who attend. While executing a successful fundraiser for the Allendale Elementary PTO is at the top of their list, they say that offering a day filled with fun and games is a close second.
“We hope the students, families, teachers, and community enjoy the updates our planning team made this year. We have put in a lot of thought and time, and considered lessons learned from past events. … Our hope is to create an atmosphere that brings everyone together.”
Events planned for this Saturday are FREE, but you are asked to register upon arrival. Games and activities will include:
- Laker Football
- Go Lakers Cheerleading
- “You Think You Can Dance?”
- Eye Olympics
- Simon Says & Rock, Paper, Scissors
- Kick it! Kickboxing
- “Get Your Move on!”
- La Pita Fresh
- Energy Explosion!
- 2 Intense Gymnastics
- Cup Stacking
Each of these activities was made possible by the generosity of our community sponsors, without whose help the event could not take place! A complete list of our sponsors can be found by clicking HERE. Please remember to thank them!
As in the past, T-shirts were allocated based on students raising at least $30 toward the event and will not be available for purchase at the Family Fitness Frenzy. If your child has brought a T-shirt (or two) home already, please make sure to wear them to the event!
Saturday’s entertainment will also include drawings for many prizes. A pledge of $30 will get your student’s name entered into the raffle for one of these great prizes! (flyer courtesy of the FFF planning team). Pledge money supports all of Allendale’s K-5 classrooms and prevents our students from having to sell candy, wrapping paper, or cookie dough to raise money.
Melissa and Wendy look forward to another terrific event and wish to thank everyone who played a part in this yearly community event.
“We could not have done this without our amazing planning team! I believe we had the best team ever — everyone clicked and rocked their roles by going above and beyond!”
We hope you’ll be able to join us for another exciting Family Fitness Frenzy!
