OSF HealthCare Children's Hospital of Illinois is hosting an event next month that will teach parents how to get their children's health moving in the right direction.

The free event from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Greater Peoria Family YMCA, 7000 N. Fleming Lane, Peoria, will be open to the first 250 kids who register here.

"The two hours will be packed with interactive games and activities the whole family can enjoy, including an obstacle course, a kid-friendly snack station, dancing and much more to promote health and wellness in children," stated an OSF news release.

Each child will receive a wrist pedometer, water bottle, bedtime chart and lunch container. There will also be raffle prizes.
