Even more encouraging than the enthusiasm displayed by the competitors was the fact that most of them brought multiple family members with them to cheer them on and enjoy the events of the day. Competitors left everything on the table and all displayed maximum effort. It was truly exciting to see the CDPS community come together to encourage and cheer on their loved ones as they finish up
their fitness events.

We want to thank all of the competitors, volunteers and supporters who made such a day possible. The CSP fitness program truly appreciates everyone’s continued commitment to such a special event.

The 2017 CSP Fit Games promises to be an even bigger and better event. Please, if you weren’t able to attend in the past, make it a point to come out and cheer on our CDPS brothers and sisters…or compete yourself. This is truly a 100% positive event that will look to have an impact on even more
of our members in the future.
