3×3 – September 2018 – The Kids Are Back To School


It’s hard to believe that it’s already September, the kids are back in school, and before we know it, fall weather will be in full swing! For this month’s 3×3 video we hit a local park to celebrate the start of the back to school season.


We want to start by highlighting a local charity, the Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation which provides resources needed for the students of the Grand Rapids Public Schools to learn, develop and thrive and for the schools to achieve education excellence. You can learn more about the Grand Rapids Student Advancement Foundation and find ways to give back HERE: https://grsaf.org/who-we-are/


Now onto the events we’re looking forward to this month!
