Gitchi Movin’ is a newly founded non-profit organization focused on bringing family-friendly community-oriented events to the Lac Courte Oreilles area.
The emphasis includes sporting and recreational events aimed towards getting community members involved in more healthy and positive sporting or recreational activities. All events are family-friendly, and the board of directors will work diligently to ensure that all events and activities are available to meet the demands of the community.
