KORE Truck KORE Mobile Outreach is a traveling recreation program designed to combat obesity and provide recreational activities in Knoxville’s socioeconomically deprived communities. The program operates from a very colorful, 14-foot box truck loaded with a variety of physically active equipment and games that are adaptable for all ages and abilities.

The KORE Mobile Outreach trucks provides fascinating physical fitness adventures that are often disguised as fun and play time. Some of the benefits include cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength, flexibility, balance, and teamwork.

Check social media for updates, weather-related updates, schedule, etc. KORE Mobile Outreach operates mostly outside and may cancel due to inclement weather.

During program times, Parks & Recreation staff provides supervision of the activity space only.  Participants are expected to adhere to activity rules to ensure a safe and fun experience for all.
