The Westside is home to the most beautiful medley of people, full of culture and diversity, united by their differences to form a strong and caring community. This strength and commitment is what makes the Westside uniquely capable to overcome the barriers that impact our neighborhoods.
The Richmond Park Project, spearheaded by Mitten Foundation, Inc., the charitable arm of The Mitten Brewing Co. is a community wide effort to bring a universally accessible play area to Grand Rapids’ Westside. A park that is welcoming to children and families, regardless of class or ability. A park where all children, regardless of barriers that affect mobility such as wheelchairs or walking aids, can safely play and enjoy the outdoors.
The Fun For All Challenge was created as a way for the local community to get creative with fundraising for the project. You can learn more here:
On August 29th, 2020, along with the Mitten Foundation we hosted a Fun For All Fitness Festival at Richmond Park. Various gyms and community members came out for some socially distanced fun and to help us raise over $1000! Check out the video and photos from the day below.
