Jul 16, 2019 Share

(WATERVLIET) – Over the last two months, community members raised $35,707 in support of the newly named George and Janet Lane PARCOURSE – a free community fitness track. Of the funds raised, $35,000 was matched by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) through the Public Spaces, Community Places program, totaling $70,707. To date, the PARCOURSE campaign has generated over $365,000 – exceeding the project’s fundraising goal. 

“This project was fully funded by philanthropic donations which is a testament to our community’s commitment to health and wellness,” said Brandi Smith, Vice President of Philanthropy, Spectrum Health Lakeland. “We’re especially grateful to our foundation board members for their passion in leading this campaign.”

The PARCOURSE is a free community fitness track open to the public from dawn to dusk. Renovations for the PARCOURSE will feature two quarter-mile asphalt loops to accommodate individuals with disabilities that may need to use wheelchairs or other mobility aids. Each loop will also feature four stations with different types of professional grade exercise equipment offering varying degrees of difficulty for all fitness levels.

“We are so pleased to have reached our fundraising goal for the PARCOURSE with the help of our community,” said Lisa Kuehnle, Spectrum Health Lakeland Foundation board member. “The new and improved fitness track will have a positive impact for area students, community members, and rehabilitation patients for many years to come.”

A grand opening ceremony for the PARCOURSE is scheduled for Friday, August 23 at 10:30 a.m. For more information, call (269) 927-5145 or visit
