#OTGYpsi: Frog Island Track Club Gets Kids Running For The Summer

Jun 26, 2019

Getting outdoors for some good exercise is essential for a child's development, especially when there's not much to do during summer vacation.  Ypsilanti Running Company owner Mike Nix wanted to give local kids such an activity by co-creating the Frog Island Track Club.  Nix talks all about this exciting youth organization with WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg on this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi."
