New Website Launched On Proposed GF Fitness Center

The center still needs to raise money and the website is a chance for the public to see the plans.

There is a new online campaign to help support a proposed Grand Forks wellness center.

The Grand Forks Park District and the YMCA have teamed up with several other partners to get the new facility built.

The Park District still needs to raise $3 to $4 million dollars for the project. The website is a chance for people to see the plans and what will be offered at the new center.

Officials say they are excited to get started after four years of planning.

"We still are obviously looking for more donations, we need about another three to four million dollars, but we have some people we are developing relationships with right now and hopefully that will fall into place." Center Court Fitness General Manager Cam Tweten said.

Tweten says they are looking to break ground on the new center this fall or early next spring.
