KNOXVILLE – In an effort to promote healthy futures for kids and their families, Knoxville Hospital & Clinics (KHC) is holding the “Spring into Health” kids’ health fair, a free event for kids and families on Thursday, April 5.

The second annual health fair will be held from 4:30-6:30 pm at the ISU Extension Building, 210 North Iowa Street in Knoxville. Many community organizations and businesses will be there providing fun, interactive activities for kids. Kids can expect to conquer a fitness challenge, chat with Miss Mary Strawberry, hug it out with HCI’s Amanda the Panda, and learn about healthy lifestyles. They can also test their germ-fighting and balance skills.

The fair is FREE.  Snacks and giveaways will be provided.

All kids will get an opportunity to win a free bike and helmet, donated by the KHC Auxiliary, just by simply visiting each vendor booth to enter the drawing. The more booths you visit, the more chances you have to win!
