Health Fest Coming To Huntley Centegra Saturday
Among this year's Health Fest highlights are a free healthy lunch, rock climbing wall, teddy bear clinic, Centegra dietitians and a “How much sugar?” game, an operation game with McHenry County Orthopedic surgeons, Chicago Wolves Hockey Mascot “Skates” and family-friendly entertainment and music provided by Dave Rudolf.
The first 400 children 16 and under will receive a free bike helmet, fitted personally by Centegra associates on-site. All helmet sizes will be available; however, once specific sizes are gone, Centegra will not distribute a helmet unless it is the right size for the child. Each family to attend will also receive a free backpack. In addition, each family in attendance will be entered into a raffle to win a Disney vacation donated by Huntley Travel.
The Health Bridge Fitness Center will have a special two-for-the-price-of-one enrollment for the day of the event only. Attendees can participate in various activities provided by the fitness center, such as quick start tennis, a vertical jump challenge and an obstacle course.
School sport physicals will be offered for the reduced-price of $25 and preregistration is required. Echocardiogram (ECHO) heart screenings also will be offered by appointment for $85. To preregister for one or both, call 815-338-6600.
As a special bonus this year, Health Fest will include a special booth dedicated to women. Each woman who stops by the booth can enter to win a pair of pearl earrings and will be given a genuine cultured fresh water pearl.
