The City of Lauderhill is gearing up for a holiday season filled with health and wellness as it kicks off a series of weekly and monthly fitness events to keep the community active and engaged. 

Happening on select days of each week, “Move with the Mayor” and “Mayor’s Fitness Challenge” events aim to promote physical fitness and healthy living for residents of all ages.

Mayor Ken Thurston and the City’s Parks and Recreation Department hold the “Move with the Mayor: Bootcamp Fitness Class” every Monday and Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at St. George Park, 3501 NW 8 Street.
