This Generation Healthy (genHkids) Kids Coalition event, sponsored by Springfield Electric, St. John’s Children’s Hospital, BUNN and Southwind Park, has so much fun in store, your kids will hardly believe there’s exercise involved.

More fun awaits with face painting, a bounce house, goodies bags, info and demos from Chinatown, Girls on the Run, Adventure Dive and Travel, Dance Creations Dance Studio, Illinois State Museum and John Geyston’s MMA. GenHkids is a Springfield nonprofit that champions kids’ health, stressing to youth that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes and healthy bodies equal healthy minds.
