The Cure for Spring Fever Health and Safety Fair

4/28/2012, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Join Us April 28 for a FREE Family Health and Safety Fair

Bring the whole family to The Cure for Spring Fever, FHN's FREE family health and safety fair in Freeport. From a bike rodeo and car seat checks to information about healthy eating and fun exercise ideas, we'll have something for everyone.

The Cure for Spring Fever will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 28 on the grounds of the FHN Family Healthcare Center - Burchard Hills, 1010 W. Fairway Drive, Freeport. (In case of rain, we'll move the fun inside!)

"We have put together a lot of fun activities, experiences and learning opportunities for our first annual Family Health and Safety Fair," said FHN pediatrician Adam Angelilli, MD, who helped to organize the event. "We'll have informational booths, a chance to dress like a doctor, a fun center with activities for kids of all ages, a fire truck, police car and ambulance to explore and a bouncy house just for fun." Dr. Angelilli will be on hand to answer parents' questions at the fair's "Ask the Pediatrician" station.

You and your children can learn about fire safety from the Freeport Fire Department (and explore a real fire truck!), the kids can test their breathing power with a tricycle run and you can get tips on how to tame a temper tantrum or energize your student's athletic performance. Bounce houses, crafts and snacks round out the day's activities.
