Choice Financial and TNT Kid's Fitness team up to care for kids

Choice Financial and TNT Kid's Fitness are teaming up to offer free childcare services on the busiest shopping day of the year, so parents can enjoy worry-free shopping.

As part of their monthly Random Acts of Kindness program, Choice Financial is partnering with TNT Kids Fitness to provide free childcare services from 5 to 9 a.m. on 'Black Friday,' Nov. 27. The service will be provided at TNT Kid's Fitness at 2800 Main Avenue in Fargo. Children will experience a morning of gym activities, arts and crafts, movies and breakfast, compliments of Wal-Mart.

The childcare service is free, however, donations of canned goods or children's toys are welcome to benefit those in greater need. The child with the largest donation will win one gymnastics recreation class and one fitness class provided by TNT.

Interested parents should pre-register their children ages five and older by contacting TNT Kid's Fitness at 701-365-8868, or Choice Financial Fargo at 701-356-9700 or Choice Financial West Fargo at 701-277-9258.

Choice Financial believes TNT Kid's Fitness provides a valuable service to the community by offering interactive programs that support the health and well-being of children. "By partnering with TNT Kid's Fitness, we are offering parents a safe place to drop the kids while they complete their busy holiday shopping. It's a little peace of mind wrapped up for the parents, and our retailers benefit by these parents being able to shop locally," said Gerry Brossart, Choice Financial market president.

The internal Random Acts of Kindness program, which Choice Financial started in early 2008, gives the employees of their bank locations the opportunity to help members of the community in some way regardless of where they bank. This years' event will help up to 150 parents.

Choice Financial is a premier provider of financial solutions with nine locations in North Dakota, including two in the Fargo area. TNT Kid's Fitness, where 'Kids are always first,' is a fitness academy that promotes understanding, acceptance, and helping all children grow stronger with confidence.
