Blue Cross Blue Shield & PFF Partner for Winter Warm Up

Friday, November 6, 2015


Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and the Playmakers Fitness Foundation are joining forces to offer communities a Couch to 5K program as part of the successful Winter Warm Up.

This free couch to 5K program is designed to motivate sedentary community members and families and give them a guided, structured opportunity to adopt a healthy lifestyle. The program is modeled after the successful Team Playmakers Couch to 5K program offered by Playmakers in Okemos.

The eight-week program includes two weekly one-hour sessions with certified Good Form Running and Walking coaches. Participants will receive a weekly e-newsletter with training and nutrition information. The 15 instructional sessions will lead up to an inclusive tri-county finale event and celebration at Hawk Island in Lansing on Saturday March 12, 2016.

The participating communities include Charlotte, Delta, Grand Ledge, Lansing, Williamston, Delhi, East Lansing and St. Johns. Contact the PFF for more details about this fantastic program. Thank you Blue Cross!

'Tis The Season...For Partnerships

Monday, November 2, 2015

It's that time of year when the Playmakers Fitness Foundation solidifies partnerships for 2016. We are very fortunate to team up with so many like minded companies to expand programming which meets our mission of helping the mid Michigan area Move More and Move Better!

We have an exciting 2016 planned but there are a few programs that we're still looking for partners to help us provide opportunities for youth, seniors and adults. If you are interested in exploring the possibilities of working with the PFF, please contact us!
