Calling all employers! How about a friendly competition to promote workplace Wellness? Presented by the Kishwaukee Family YMCA and KishHealth System, Fit Fest celebrates National Employee Health and Fitness Day and will be held this Wednesday, May 15, Noon – 3 and 4 – 6 p.m. The event is for the entire family and strollers are welcome. B-95 WDKB-FM will be broadcasting live from the site.
The start line and registration is on the grassy area along Health Services Drive by the Y’s back parking lot. Parking will be available at the YMCA, at the Kishwaukee Professional Building on Health Services Drive or at the new Cancer Center.
Walkers will go west toward the new path around the old hospital site. One lap around and back to the Y parking lot is just short of one mile. Those who want a little longer challenge can continue on to the Healing Garden Walking Path around the new Cancer Center. The Healing Garden Walking Path is just under one-quarter mile. In case of rain, FitFest will be held at the YMCA Sports Center.
Registration fee for FitFest is $5 and can be paid in advance at the YMCA, $7 after May 4th. Sign-up can also be done at FitFest. A registration form can be downloaded at www.kishymca.org. A limited number of FitFest t-shirts will be given to participants. For information, call the Y at (815)756-9577. Click here to learn more!
