Getting Fit on the Blue Bridge

Posted By

We are heading back to the Blue Bridge on September 13 for another year of Pure Barre! With dedicated partners like LolëPure Barre of Grand Rapids and Lake Michigan Credit Union, we are thrilled to bring this charitable event to downtown Grand Rapids again.

By attending this unique event, not only will you be getting a great workout – you will also be fundraising while you tone and lift! All proceeds from the event will directly support groundbreaking cancer and Parkinson’s disease research at Van Andel Institute, just minutes from the Blue Bridge! We are grateful to Lake Michigan Credit Union for underwriting this event, and the continued support from Lolë and Pure Barre of GR for their efforts in hosting each year.

Registration for Pure Barre on the Blue Bridge is now available! Be sure to reserve your spot today and start your individual fundraising journey for the event. Don’t forget to bring a yoga mat, water bottle, towel and cash for raffle prizes!

Curious to know more about this event before you go? Check out our photo gallery from last year!

We are also seeking volunteers to assist with event logistics from 6–9 p.m., please contact Allyson.Huttenga@vai.org if you are available to help. If you are interested in donating raffle prizes to enhance this event, please email grandrapids@purebarre.com.

We hope you will join us for sweeping views of downtown Grand Rapids, a sunset from the iconic Blue Bridge you won’t forget and an amazing evening of friendship, fitness and fundraising for Van Andel Institute.
