Plans are in the making for a new family-focused event at Inland Hospital on Saturday, September 15, 2012 and you’re invited to join us. The Let’s Go! Family Fun Day is a new, annual event kicking off a year-long series of activities focused on helping families with children live healthy, active lives.

The free community kick-off event in September will be held at the Inland Woods trailhead behind Inland Hospital and will include guided walks and other activities promoted by Let’s Go! 5210. Activities at the trailhead will include a climbing wall, music and dancing with Mr. Harley, trail walks, geocaching, Let’s Go! StoryWalk™, free resources and information to help local families make healthy choices.

The September 15 event also kicks off a series of free and low-cost activities to encourage local families to engage in active play and healthy eating throughout the year. Family Fun Passes provided at the event will offer regularly scheduled events and suggested activities to encourage families to engage in life-long healthy habits such as hiking, swimming, bicycling, skating, snowshoeing, sledding, cross-country skiing, and nutritious home cooking.
