Legendary award-winning tennis player, Zina Garrison, hosted a community Funday at MacGregor Park last month and it was a rip-roaring success!
Funday In The Park offered a way for Houstonians affected by Hurricane Harvey to relax, release and find relief. The fun kicked off with a 5K walk for health and wellness hosted by Olympians, Carl Lewis and Zina Garrison. Honorees and special guests included TJ Ford, Clyde Drexler, Royal Duchess Step Team Bun B, Miss Mykie and more.
All of MacGregor Park was transformed into a fun zone for the entire family to enjoy. Funday In The Park had live local and national entertainment, interactive kid zones, food trucks, an exciting slam tennis experience, rolling art with Houston’s best art cars, and basketball clinics hosted by John Lucas. It was truly a fun-filled, healthy afternoon.
