Monday, March 10, 2014

Port Huron, MI – McLaren Port Huron will host its 25th Annual Children’s Fun and Fitness Festival Saturday, March 29 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the hospital. Registration at the door begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m. This free event gives children ages 5 – 11 the opportunity to become familiar with the hospital environment in a way that is fun and active, get them excited about their health and promote fitness.  

Several interactive stations will be set up throughout the John F. Wismer Health Center, including a visit to the operating room, ambulance tours, pet therapy and two challenging obstacle courses. Other stations include health screenings, educational materials, a photo booth sponsored by the YMCA of the Blue Water Area, and fun activities for kids. Special appearances by the “Tooth Fairy” and “Pick-Pocket Pat” will take place throughout the day. Each child present can enter to win a bicycle donated by Dr. Walid Demashkieh, Dr. Zubin Bhesania and Dr. Anthony Boutt. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
