GRiT Event – Lakeside Park, Waco

October 14, 2023 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

GRiT Lakeside Park

Come join our GRiT ambassadors and coaches for some fun in the woods as we #facethetrails together! We will have our GRiT tent set up with a few snacks and get together to ride our bikes through the trails!

The goal of this event is to FACE THE TRAILS in two ways:

ADVENTURE scavenger hunt to find the faces in the trees

EMPOWERMENT to acknowledge our feelings going into the trails and overcoming them

All are welcome, but please bring a bike appropriate for mountain bike trails, helmet, and hydration.

Note: Woodway park has been recently named Lakeside Park, Google Maps still uses “Woodway Park”.
