Group strives to raise money for playground

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The community showed up in record numbers this morning for an event to help raise money for a playground.

Fitness Together held its 4th Annual 5k at Mill Creek Park.

More than 100 people of all ages participated this year.

Fitness Together has locations in Canfield and Poland, and specializes in private and small group personal training and nutrition support.

All of the profits from the event will go to the children’s playground at the Wick Recreation Area inside Mill Creek Park.

“It’s kind of a perfect fit, because we’re promoting wellness and kids staying active and everything, which is obviously something we believe in,” said Erin Mellinger, owner of Fitness Together.

The event usually raises more than 4000 dollars each year. This year’s race had the biggest turnout ever.
