Kids Adventure Challenge Complete!

October 10th, 2014

We had a great time at the Third Annual Kids Adventure Challenge hosted by Gazelle Sports. Boys & Girls Club of Grand Rapids was very excited to once again be chosen as the events partner charity. The event, which was held at the John Ball Zoo welcomed more than 500 children and their families. Each team consisted of two to five people who raced through the zoo and the surrounding park to compete in many physical and mental challenges together. This year's theme was sports, so all of the challenges were based on various kinds of sports from bowling, football, golf and soccer to name a few. Families even got to take pictures with several mascots from local sports teams and colleges who made an appearance at the event.   After two hours or when each challenge was complete, teams raced to the finish line to claim their prizes. The event was a huge success! Thanks to our many sponsors, including Spectrum Health, the event helped raise more than $5,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth.
