ver the past nearly three
years, I have had the greatest
experiences of my life being
a part of Detroit's growing
community. What I have the privilege of
calling my job has truly been a dream
come true. It is an honor
to be able to organize and
host all of the intramural
leagues and social events that
ComePlayDetroit has had to
We have had more than
9,000 people participate
in CPD, and our highlights
have ranged from having
the opportunity to host the
Detroit Lions half-time show
on Monday Night Football,
to hosting Dodgeball in the D, an attempt
at the world's largest dodgeball game on
Belle Isle.
CPD is now taking our next steps in
the community rebuilding effort with
the opening of our first physical space,
the ComePlayDetroit Fitness Studio,
located at 110 Clifford St. in Detroit. The
space has been built out and decorated,

and we have already begun to offer yoga,
zumba and boot camp classes over the
past two months. It is clear to us that
there is a need and demand in the city for
this space, so now it's time to really crank
things up and take this to the next level!
We are kicking-off an
Indiegogo crowd funding
campaign and need your
support. What makes our
campaign unique is our ability
to provide great perks to reward
your generosity, including free
classes at the Fitness Studio, free
monthly packages of classes,
free co-ed and men's leagues,
hooded sweatshirts and more.
Your support will go toward
getting mirrors on our walls,
a ballet bar, proper lighting and various
other finishing touches to ensure that
everyone that attends a class at the
ComePlayDetroit Fitness Studio has the
best experience possible.
Thank you for all of your support.
