SICFIT Round Rock is partnering with the Round Rock Police Foundation to host 2017 SICEST of Texas, an inaugural day-long fun and fitness community event on November 18th, 2017 at 8:00 am. The event is set to bring together the Central Texas community with local police, firefighters, EMS, active military, veterans, and small businesses while encouraging fun in fitness. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the Round Rock Police Foundation, which works to further support Round Rock police officers and the community as a whole.
From a kids’ obstacle course to a fitness competition specifically designed for teens, the event is meant for all ages. Events for adults are also planned, both in individual and team classes. The events will allow civilians, first responders (police, firefighters, and EMS), active military and veterans to join together and compete for fun on a level playing field.
“The event is much bigger than just an athletic competition: we want people from all walks of life to join together for a day of health, wellness, community, and competition. Our goal is for everyone to walk away from the day feeling accomplished, strong, and as proud of living in Central Texas as we feel,” states SICFIT Round Rock co-owner, Kaleigh Chatfield.
In order to make this first year a success, SICFIT Round Rock needs help from the local community. Currently, it is looking for fellow local businesses, corporations, and community members to help both sponsor the event and attend as vendors. Sponsorships and vendor fees will directly support the Round Rock Police Foundation and help lay the groundwork for a cohesive, uplifting, and like-minded community event.
“When the Round Rock Police Foundation approached us last year with the idea of putting on an event that would help to complement their existing work within this community, we jumped at the chance to make a positive impact on an even greater number of people than we are able to reach within our gym’s 90-year old walls,” states SICFIT Round Rock co-owner, Mike Allred. “The city has already taken so much initiative to make fitness and wellness accessible to its residents, and to bring together
first responders and the community, and we want to continue to encourage and expand upon that.”
Round Rock Sport’s Complex has been secured for Saturday, November 18th, 2017 from 8:00am-5:00pm. Vendor booths will be available inside the air-conditioned complex and opportunities for ad sponsorship and specific event sponsorship is available as well.
