The Fit Chicks recently wrapped up the Ravenna Fun Fitness Series by hosting a Red Carpet Event at the Ravenna Elks Club to recognize the sponsors and many volunteers that made the series possible.
The series included three events, starting with the Marlene Watt Walk in June, a two-mile walk and a five-mile run. On Balloon A-Fair day, the Balloon A-Fair Chase, a 10-mile run, preceded the parade.
In October, Got Bike? ended the series with a 10-, 25-, and 50-mile ride around Portage County. The little ones enjoyed a Big Wheel Race at Ravenna High School Stadium.
The Ravenna Fun Fitness Series sponsors included the city of Ravenna, Fit Chicks Inc., Allen Aircraft, Dave Petrone State Farm Insurance, The Print Shop, Home Town Bank, Portage Community Bank, Portage Cyclery, and Sports Xpress.
Committee members for the Red Carpet Event included chairwoman Karla Rhoads, Maria Rhoads, Leslee Keegan, Mary Beth Talerico and Tina Hannahs.
Proceeds from the Ravenna Fun Fitness Series benefit the Ravenna Recreation Youth Scholarship Fun and Ravenna Athletic Center programs.
