Governor’s Council

gc-endorsed-logoThe Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness, Health and Sports has recognized Alpenfest® as a quality physical activity event. As a result, Alpenfest® will be included in the Pure Michigan FITness Series endorsement program!

The Pure Michigan FITness Series endorses local, regional and state events to acknowledge an organization’s ability to plan and carry out a quality event that significantly contributes to the health and well-being of Michigan residents. Alpenfest® exemplifies this core value and is endorsed by the Governor’s Council.

“By endorsing local events all across the state, we hope to bring attention to the importance of physical activity and encourage our citizens to take responsibility for their health,” said Marilyn Lieber, president and CEO of the Governor’s Council. “These local events can have a tremendous impact on health care costs that present a significant challenge for our state’s economy.”

In order to become an endorsed event, an organization must complete an application form for review. Some criteria that is taken into consideration includes providing a positive, safe physical activity experience using qualified officials and benefiting a nonprofit or charitable organization.
