Welcome to Evergreen Park & Recreation District's 30-Day Fitness Challenge!

30-Day Fitness ChallengeThe goal of the Fitness Challenge -- February 16 - March 17 -- is to encourage the community to get fit and win prizes by attending as many Fitness and Indoor Cycling classes over the 30-day period as possible!

Register for the Challenge online, or the front desk at either Wulf or Buchanan Park Recreation Centers, and receive a special “United in Health and Fitness” wristband (online registrants can collect at either center). We encourage everyone to wear their wristbands when participating in classes, so you are easily recognizable.

A prize will be given each week for the most tickets collected. At the end of 30 days, the participant with the most tickets will win from the following list of prizes. If multiple participants have the same number of tickets, those names will be entered into a drawing for the 1st place prize.

Register for the 30-Day Fitness Challenge at the either Wulf or Buchanan Park Recreation Centers or online, and start going to fitness/indoor cycling class to get fit! Participants earn:
-- 1 ticket for regular fitness classes
-- 2 tickets for specific cycling/TRX classes (highlighted on the February Fitness Calendar)
-- 5 tickets if participants purchase and utilize a 1-hour Personal Training session pre/post class.

Class instructor/trainer will issue and then collect your ticket(s) at the end of class/session and enter them into the weekly tally. **Failure to turn in your ticket at time of class will forfeit that visits ticket.

The participant with the most tickets per week will be awarded a prize. (If multiple participants have the same ticket tally, they will be entered into a drawing for that week's prize.) Weekly winners will be informed via email and can collect their prizes from Kendra Hinkson, Recreation Supervisor-Programs, located at Buchanan Park Recreation Center.

At the end of the Challenge, staff will tally all raffle tickets collected over the 30 days and identify the Fitness Challenge winner. If more then one participant has the same number of tickets, those participants will be entered into a drawing to select the grand prize winner!

Buchanan Park Feasibility Study Survey

BPRC Small WHAT'S YOUR OPINION on Buchanan Park Rec Center Expansion?
Take a 2-Minute Survey to Give Feedback on Buchanan's Future
EPRD wants your opinion on a possible expansion of Buchanan Park Rec Center.

It's part of an ongoing feasibility study being conducted to determine how Buchanan should be expanded to meet the community's needs in coming years. Sketches for proposed improvements, and the cost in annual taxes for each option, are on display at Buchanan and below.

Options under consideration, gathered from results of a 2013 community survey, include improvements to aquatic amenities, a gymnasium, indoor turf field and running track, and fitness classrooms.

Sink Combs Dethlefs is the architectural firm that EPRD contracted to complete a Feasibility Study about potential rec center improvements.
