GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. – The Salvation Army Kroc Center is holding a series of “Family Fun & Fitness Nights” during the month of July, on Wednesdays (July 5, 12, 19, 26). All events are free to both members and non-members.

This event will feature an all-ages fitness class in the Kroc’s outdoor amphitheater at 5:45pm. Classes will include Zumba, Urban Kick, Family Fit, and Family Boot Camp.

Once the class is over, kids and parents alike can cool off on the Kroc Center’s giant slip & slide from roughly 6:30 to 8:30pm.

Kroc staff and volunteers will also offer face painting and concessions; local organizations will also have tables with information and activities for families.

“We are excited to bring back Family Fun & Fitness Nights this summer,” said Lieutenant Bill Brutto, senior officer for The Salvation Army Kroc Center. “We love giving families the opportunity to get active and enjoy time together in a fun and safe environment.”

Family Fun & Fitness Nights are made possible through financial support from Molina Healthcare of Michigan.

The event will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or lightning. Visit or call 616.588.7200 for more information.
