Fit Families is a program designed to encourage and support families to spend more time together and make healthier life choices. Through partnerships, the Apache Junction Multi-Generational Center (MGC) will provide events, workshops, scholarship opportunities for members of our community. In addition, parents can work out or take one of our group fitness classes while their kids climb the rock wall, shoot hoops, play in the game room, or just hang.
The City of Apache Junction welcomes participation by people with disabilities in all programs, sites, and facilities. For more information about accessibility contact us at 480-983-2181 or firstname.lastname@example.org visitwww.ajcity.net/ada.

Girls On the Run®
Girls on the Run® (GOTR)is a non-profit program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. The program combines training for a 5k running event with self-esteem enhancing, uplifting workouts and curriculum-based lessons on themes such as dealing with body image and the media, resisting peer pressure, making healthy decisions and contributing to the community. Open to all 3rd-5th grade girls, this program will be held at the MGC and will culminate in a season ending 5k Run/Walk.
Today's middle-school girls face many challenges and obstacles that can affect their emotional and physical well-being. The Heart & Sole curriculum is designed to address these challenges by empowering them to make thoughtful and healthy decisions. Like Girls on the Run, the Heart & Sole curriculum is delivered over the course of 10 to 12 weeks and addresses the societal, mental and emotional challenges particular to 6th-8th graders and will culminate in a season ending 5k Run/Walk.
