Ministry Sponsorship Plays Key Role in Parisi Speed School Award

MERRILL, WI- The Parisi Speed School powered by Riverside Athletic Club, Merrill has been named the 2013 Winner of the Community Involvement Award by Parisi Franchise Systems, parent company of Parisi Speed Schools.

Across the country, Parisi Speed School facilities strive to be a positive impact in their home communities; it is Parisi Riverside’s year round commitment to community service that stands out among the 80+ Parisi facilities.

“We know that fitness and sports skills enrich our individual members’ lives; clubs like Parisi Speed School in Merrill reach out to enrich their communities.  We are tremendously proud that the Parisi Coaches and athletes commit time and energy to help others, “Bill Parisi, CEO Parisi Franchise Systems. 

Parisi students and families in Merrill are actively involved in community service projects ranging from Toys for Tots to food drives to the 5/10K Run United. 

“As John Wooden so eloquently said, “Ability may help you get to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.” “This is one of our goals at Parisi Speed School, to help build each child’s character and community involvement is a tool that we use to build character,” says Paul Kienitz, owner of Riverside Athletic Club.  “Our staff knows the importance of community involvement and is dedicated to it.”

A unique partnership with Ministry Health Care provides financial assistance to make the Parisi program available to families in need as well as health information from physicians at Ministry Medical Group’s Merrill Clinic, located on the 4th floor of Ministry Good Samaritan Health Center.

“Ministry Health Care and Riverside are truly partners in developing healthy athletes,” said Tom Weaver, Public and Community Relations Manager, Ministry Health Care. “We congratulate them on this honor and their continued support of the Merrill community.”
