Catalyst Sports Medicine presented a check of $500 to Hannah Burns, the organizer and developer for the new fitness park expected to be installed at Lakefront Park in Hudson this fall. Burns is a junior at Hudson High School and is organizing the fitness park as part of a Girl Scout program. With the guidance of her parents, Kim and Jim Burns, they have already raised about three-quarters of the money needed to complete the $33,000 project.
"As a local health and fitness business at Catalyst Sports Medicine, we love to support projects like this one that are aimed at improving the health and well-being of the Hudson residents and all visitors to Lakefront Park," Catalyst CEO John Knutson said. "Hannah has done an incredible job of recognizing the need for fitness for people of all ages and athletic abilities and then filling the gap with this beautiful and effective fitness park. It's quite remarkable what Hannah has done to bring this project to fruition."
The installation of the park is expected in mid-November. Burns has had great collaboration from the City of Hudson Parks and Recreation Department, vendors for the project, and contributions from a lot of residents and local businesses. If anyone, or any business is interested in financially supporting the fitness park project, you can make contributions through the St. Croix Valley Foundation, with your check memo referencing the fitness park project.
