FIT FAMILIES PROGRAM
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 or visit www.ajcity.net/ada.

October 17th-31st -Virtual Mud-Less Run
November- 2-Mile Fun Run/Walk
2020 Fit Families Virtual Mud-Less Run
COVID-19 may have forced cancelation of many of our events, however, we at Parks & Recreation are pretty flexible. We may not be able to host the Mud Run this year, but we can still come up with something different and new for 2020!
This year we have created a Virtual Mud-Less Run! Run/Walk/Crawl the distance you choose! Do it in a park, in your neighborhood, on a treadmill...it’s up to you! Map out your own course, create obstacles, and even decorate your own finish line!
The challenge consists of bodyweight exercises, two carries (where you can make something with a bag if you don’t have weights) and running. There are reps and distances for each level as well. NO GYM EQUIPMENT IS REQUIRED! After each ¼ mile run, have a family member spray you with a hose or squirt gun or throw water balloons at you while you do the exercises-it’s on you to stay dry!
For a more authentic "Mud Run" experience, choose a trail, state park or other area with more challenging terrain. Complete by October 31st, 2020.
You will receive an AJPR Mud-Less Run Medal & AJPR Mud-Less Run T-Shirt.
