NORWICH – This Saturday, Aim Fitness welcomes the community and a number of health organizations to its facility in the North Plaza for a day of charity, athletic events, wellness education and family fun.
Aim Fitness marks what it hopes will become a yearly tradition for the business, the second annual Family Fitness Day, said owner Eric Montalvo.
“Basically, we just wanted to become a community-oriented business. We’ve planned for a lot of neat stuff to take place and all the generated funds from the day goes to two really great organizations, Catholic Charities and the SPCA,” Montalvo said.
Family Fitness Day will collect money through fees paid by participants taking part in one of the three main events with all proceeds divided evenly between the Catholic Charities’ Roots and Wings program and the Chenango County SPCA. Aim staff members have also sold T-shirts and solicited local businesses to sponsor an event or a competing team.
From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aim will hold Family Fitness Day in front of or inside the business located at 6142 State Highway 12 in Norwich. Last year the event took place at Weiler Park, but organizers moved it to the business’ location after growing beyond the park’s capacity in the first year.
