South Carolina opened its first We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym in Greenville this month! The grand opening celebration was held on Saturday, June 8th, 2019. It was a very exciting weekend for the Greenville team and community. Project Manager, Grace Covino, and Creative Director, Arnon Arad, from our Corporate team flew in to guide and attend the big event.
Chris and Kimberly Tolbert are the rockin’ new owners of this new location. They are the parents of two sons, Christopher Jr. and Kaleb. As an educator of nearly 25 years, Kimberly has taught special needs children from kindergarten to 8th grade, as well as at the collegiate level. She has multiple teaching certifications in Special Education/Multicategorical and Early Childhood Education. Christopher has spent the past 19 years in marketing and sales roles. He has numerous credentials in business management, diversity, collaboration and corporate business practices.
Their combined experience in education and business is a recipe for success! They have brought a vibrant and inclusive gym to their community with their goal of providing a safe space for children of ALL abilities to play with a purpose. Based on their opening day, we think that they will have no problem reaching and exceeding this goal!
“Wow, what a weekend! Two birthdays, a grand opening, and a live interview this morning at 5 am! Thank you to Dina, Grace, Arnon, Shane, Dana, Gail, Tyler, and ATAK for all the support! South Carolina is in the house!” Kimberly wrote in an enthusiastic Facebook post following the event. Children and their families were treated to lots of food and resources from local businesses while checking out all the sensory-safe equipment that We Rock specially offers.
In addition to celebrating the opening of their new gym, both Chris and Kimberly celebrated their birthdays a few days before on the 7th. FOX Carolina and WSPA 7 News featured our new owners and the gym. We Rock the Spectrum – Greenville has already proven to be a big hit in the community.
Congratulations to Chris & Kimberly Tolbert and the new WRTS – Greenville on an amazing opening day! We can’t wait to see you continue to ROCK!
