[ARCHIVED] Triton College Hosts First-Ever Family Fitness Day


Children and adults can dance, run and play their way to a healthier lifestyle during Triton College’s first-ever Fun Family Fitness Day on Saturday, June 4. Families throughout the community are invited to check out the FREE EVENT filled with activities, healthy snacks and information that will inspire you to set and keep your fitness goals on track.

The event runs from 10:00 AM - 12 Noon at Triton’s East Campus Athletic Complex (2000 Fifth Ave., River Grove).

Feel like a star as you earn your ribbon for crossing the finish line during one of the ‘Fun Runs’ that will be held throughout the event on our brand new running track.

See how much fun it is to get a great cardio workout in as you move and groove your way through our Zumba class that combines a high energy mix of hip-hop, samba, salsa and merengue music.

During the event, you’ll also have a chance to sample some healthy snacks and learn how easy and delicious eating right can be. While you’re there, sign the kids up for one of Triton’s youth sports camps that will keep them moving all summer long.

Fun Family Fitness Day is also a great opportunity to check out Triton’s newly renovated East Campus Athletic Complex.

The facility includes new synthetic turf baseball and softball fields complete with upgraded lighting, field houses and bleacher buildings.

Additionally, the safe and sustainable multi-purpose field is ready to host a variety of athletic events, including soccer, track and field, lacrosse, football and more.

Triton College hopes to make the new East Campus Athletic Complex a resource the entire community can enjoy by partnering with schools and organizations to host youth sports tournaments, high school competitions and more.
