Save the date for Rock the Block 2012!

Posted: 04-26-2012

It is time to Rock the Block again! We are taking over Madison Ave on June 9 to celebrate community, culture and connection to opportunity! The Fest will feature local food, live entertainment, health screenings, GRPS graduate appreciation, give-a-ways, activities for children, a car show, chess tournament, horse-back rides and more.

The main purpose of the 2nd Annual Rock the Block Health Fest & Fair is to advocate for and educate our community on healthy lifestyles and provide direct access to education and job opportunities. 70-80 local nonprofit organizations, including health care providers, businesses, colleges and universities, are attending to provide direct access for neighborhood families.

The event will be held from 11am-6pm. There will be something for everyone so come on out Saturday, June 9th and help us Rock the Block!

Seniors graduating from Grand Rapids Public Schools that day will be honored with special recognition on stage.

Stay tuned for a schedule of events. For more information and to pre-register for the chess tournament contact Javonte Tubbs, or 616.308.6334.
