Planet Fitness Grand opening event includes donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City

The donation celebrates a commitment to anti-bullying efforts, as well as the official opening of a new Overland Park Planet Fitness location


OVERLAND PARK (QUIVIRA), KS (February 15, 2018)— Today Planet Fitness presented a $5,000 oversized check to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City to honor the official grand opening of its new Overland Park club, the eleventh in the Kansas City area.

The donation was given during a 9:00 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony that took place at the new Planet Fitness club, located at 9331 Quivira Road. The gift will benefit the Boys & Girls Club’s anti-bullying efforts, and represents Planet Fitness’ commitment to investing in the Kansas City area community through a number of goodwill initiatives.

“We strive to create a space where everyone feels accepted and respected, which is why we’ve donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City’s anti-bullying efforts to maintain our community’s positive environment,” said Greg Henson, Franchise Partner.

Planet Fitness has recently been extending its judgement-free philosophy outside of its gym and into the community with its philanthropic initiative, “Judgement Free Generation™.” Together with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City, Planet Fitness aims to empower a generation of children and teens to grow up contributing to a more judgement-free planet—a place where everyone feels accepted and like they belong.

The Overland Park location, at Quivira and 93rd Street, offers memberships starting at just $10 per month. The PF Black Card® membership, which is $21.99 a month, includes additional amenities such as the ability to bring a guest every day at no added charge, access to all of Planet Fitness’ more than 1,400 locations, as well as access to massage beds and chairs, and tanning, among other benefits*.
