Improving the Quality of Life of an Entire Town Through Fitness


The creation, operation and support of fitness events is a core campaign of GetFIT Griffith. While some events exists today, we will work with organizers and provide support and promotion so more citizens of Griffith participate.

Fitness Events

Our sponsored and supported events will focus on fitness, fun and community promotion.  We believe these events may be
