Spring into Fitness


Richard Bong State Recreation Area and the Bong Naturalist Association will hold its annual Spring into Fitness wellness challenge during April and the first week of May at Richard Bong State Recreation Area, 26313 Burlington Road.

Teams of two to four can register for $10 each during the month of April or at the kickoff event at 9:30 a.m. April 6th. Participants will then hike a trail and will meet at the Visitor Center.


Participants will earn points for engaging in healthy behaviors, including being more physically active (hiking, biking or other activity of choice), engaging in healthy nutritional habits (drinking water or eating more fruits and vegetables), and participating in stress-reduction activities (yoga, dancing or sunrise/sunset viewing).

While special events will be offered at the park throughout the month, people may participate in the activities of their choice anywhere. This event will reintroduce the community to the pleasure of a healthy lifestyle and a great natural resource while raising funds to be used for park improvements.

Businesses, family, friends, schools, youth and church groups are all encouraged to participate.

To receive a registration form or for more information, call(262) 878-5600 or visit Richard Bong State Recreation Area during office hours. This event is sponsored by the Bong Naturalist Association.
