The Hilton Head Island Recreation Association has partnered with another local nonprofit, People for Parks, to spearhead the campaign, entitled, “Equip for Fit! At the Island Rec Center.” This effort will launch on June 21, 2017, from 5-7pm at Island Rec Center Open House. Tours of the under-construction rec center will be given. A special announcement from the David. M Carmines Foundation will take place at 5:30pm.
People for Parks’ purpose is to instill community spirit and enhance the long-term health and vitality of the community by providing guidance and leadership through marketing and fundraising efforts for the development of public recreational facilities on Hilton Head Island. It is the intent of this organization to effectively manage and utilize their financial resources to establish a diverse assemblage of recreational facilities for all island residents and visitors. The group has successfully raised money for Chaplin, Bristol and Crossings Park.
Equip for Fit aims to raise $1.2 million dollars for the equipment, furnishings and fixtures of the renovated and expanded rec center. The rec center addition transforms the existing 30 year old gym & pool to an upscale and expanded community center. The Association will be able to run activities for children, families and seniors at the same time in the 42,000 sq. ft. facility.
