First Day of Fall

The beauty beneath the surface of Autumn represents a period of letting go and starting over. Trees shed leaves and flowers lose petals to prevent being weighed down during impeding seasons. In contrast, Detroit has endured many transitional seasons – some more challenging than others, but necessary in our efforts to come together as a community. Just as our city’s flag represents, we hope for better things as we emerge from the ashes. FIST4WRD is also celebrating a new beginning and is giving our supporters a chance to do the same. Find out how you too can put your best FIST4WRD and take the pledge to redefine Detroit!

Happy Birthday To You!

Happy 318th Detroit! You don’t look a day over 313. Birthdays are all about new beginnings, and Detroit is undergoing a one day at a time rebirth – complete with a do-over that is long overdue. Detroit’s ‘when the going gets tough‘ tenacity has given its residents an ability to overcome and adapt despite the circumstance. And our mission at FIST4WRD is to redefine Detroit as the world class destination it has always been by showcasing its people, purpose, our promise to pay it forward. As the saying goes, history always repeats itself, and rising from the ashes has literally become the spirit of Detroit, and what Detroiters do best. Because of that, FIST4WRD is back like we never left – just like the city we love! How will you redefine Detroit? Drop a line and let us know!

This Week in FIST4WRD.

A memorial dedicated to Detroit boxer Joe Louis, also known as The Fist, celebrated its 32nd year in the city. Meanwhile, having a seat has taken on a totally new meaning just across the way at the Joe Louis Arena. The Detroit Police Department’s officers are getting a well deserved pay increase. And apparently there’s more than one metro Detroit shopping mall with a skywalk. For your information, that’s This Week in FIST4WRD.

The Fox Theatre, also known as Detroit’s crown jewel, is recognized by Architectural Digest as Michigan’s most magnificent theater. The former flagship movie palace was once our city’s installment from the one-time national cinema chain. The venue’s visually arresting grandeur has hosted decades of spectators, with accommodations for approximately 5000. What’s your fondest memory of The Fox Theatre? FIST4WRD to leave us a line.
