GENESEO – A strong collaboration between the United Way of Livingston County, Wegmans, Genesee Valley Motors, the Livingston County Health Department, and the Village of Geneseo has received committed funds so that three state-of-the-art fitness stations will be added to Highland Park.
There will be three outdoor fitness stations with equipment built for a variety of exercise types and ability levels by a California-based outdoor workout design company. Jeremy Lee from Lee Chiropratic and Physical Therapy helped select the exercises so they are appropriate for all fitness levels.
“I’m very excited about this project because it’s bringing together many different groups of individuals who are working together for the benefit of the community,” said Karen Rumfola, Regional Director of United Way for Livingston County. “I can’t wait to see the finished product.”
Rumfola brought the project together as part of a community benefit plan so that all can enjoy a place to exercise and celebrate community in Highland Park.
United Way, Wegmans, Genesee Valley Motors, the Livingston County Health Department, and the Village of Geneseo all showed their commitment to promote wellness in their community with this project. The state-of-the-art fitness stations are built by Greenfields Outdoor Fitness, who also designed the equipment. Geneseo now joins the ranks of communities such as San Francisoco and Boulder Colorado who have previously purchased Greenfields’ fitness stations.
“This entire concept was inspired by my time in Highland Park and what a wonderful gem we have in the Village of Geneseo,” said Josh Williams, Publisher of the GeneseeSun.com. “When we work together with our wonderful sponsors who believe in our community, we can build elements that all members of our community can enjoy.”
