Sports Park Power Couple End 2016 on a High Note

Dec 22, 2016 01:03PM ● By Bowe Fertig

With all the exciting things happening around the holidays, Tracy and Ron Murray continue to provide quality events and gifts for great causes at Sports Park Recreation Center. Boys & Girls Club of South County has a long-standing tradition with holding its annual “Breakfast with Santa” handing out toys to all the kids in attendance. Tracy since the beginning of December pushed for her Zumba ladies to support the Club in their cause and they met the demand by providing 15 quality toys for our youth.

On the same day, December 17th, as “Breakfast with Santa,” Ron linked up with his son Kyle Murray to provide a great class for kids in the Include Autism program. “Ron improves on what we are continually doing here at Sports Park with adding quality classes we have never offered before at the Recreation Center,” replied Program Director Bowe Fertig. “The hope is to create a monthly class to give an avenue for youth who wouldn’t have that opportunity elsewhere,” said Fertig.

As 2016 comes to an end, Ron’s Kickboxing class at Sports Park Recreation Center has seen a large increase in the number of youth and teenagers attending. Coordinating with Include Autism is a great transition because Sports Park is now reaching out to different groups of youth. Ron simply does it because of the satisfaction he receives from the look on the kid’s faces.

To end the year off with a bang, Tracy held her 2nd Annual Zumba Holiday Party with 20 people in attendance. “Tracy does a really good job of preparing for events providing the treats, music, and excitement. Her Valentine, Halloween, and Holiday classes provide a great atmosphere and her ladies love it!” described Fertig. Tracy has seen her class double in size at every major holiday class and it is a testament to her hard and excitement she brings with each class.

In anything you do or try to accomplish, it is much easier to do it as a team. Tracy and Ron's tag-team effort displays their intentions and big hearts which we could all use at this time of the year
