Businesses are invited to support!

The City of Escondido is the first Model City in Southern California building five fitness courts across the city.  We are seeking partners to help make the National Fitness Campaign (NFC) Fitness Courts in Escondido happen.  We have one fitness court installed at Mountain View Park and are working on identifying locations and funding for four additional courts.  If you would like to sponsor this effort please Contact Us with your interest.
