BOTG MINI FLYERPurple Community is excited to be a charity partner for the first ever Battle of the Gains (BOTG)! Please join us for a day filled with outdoor sporting activities fit for the whole family!

Battle of the gains has three main components:

A $25 pre-registration fee covers a BOTG Shirt, BOTG Medal, Trophy for the First Place Team, and Special Wristband providing all day access to ALL family fun events.
  2. Health and Fitness Expo: This is the centerpiece of this high traffic event with nearly 100 vendors showcasing products and services (Admission is FREE for SPECTATORS). Along with many other vendors, doctors from Maximized Living, who will be in Rio for the 2016 USA Olympics, will speak with West Michigan Athletes on how to advance nutrition, speed up recovery and reduce the risk of injury.
