Local Business announces fourth 'Pool Bash' event



Grand Rapids, MI – Grand Valley Family Health Center (GVFHC) is hosting an afternoon of health and fun for the entire family. Pool Bash 2017 is a free pool day and health fair that takes place at Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation Richmond Pool on July 20th. For one day only, kids (17 and under) are invited to swim for free. In addition, GVFHC will host a health fair inside the pool area featuring local organizations promoting fun activities and healthy living.

“We wanted to remove the financial barrier some kids face when using the community pools here in Grand Rapids,” said Pool Bash organizer Matt Witkowski. “Pool Bash creates a fun and exciting atmosphere promoting both good health and physical activity.”

Pool Bash takes place at Richmond Pool, 1101 Richmond St. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504. Free admission begins at 1:00 pm and ends at 3:30pm. Kids under the age of 10 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Offer valid for kids 18 and under only. No exceptions. Admission for adults who are residents of Grand Rapids is $2 (non-residents is $4). The pool has a capacity of 500 people so organizers ask you to please plan accordingly.

Presenting Sponsor Molina Health is raffling off 2 bikes for kids.

Both Witkowski and Grand Rapids Officer Tony Leonard #290 are available for interviews before and during the event.
