Skate For the Fun of Fit
Now that colder weather has settled in, it’s time to Skate for the Fun of Fit.
Greenville Health System is thrilled to be a sponsor of the 2018-19 United Community Bank Ice on Main season. Not only is skating a great way to get your family and friends together, but it is one of the more fun ways to stay in shape during the cooler months.
If ice skating isn’t your thing, we have come up with a few other ways to keep you and your family on the move during the holiday season.
