Calling all Creative Kids! Join MHS at the Chase 500 Festival Kids’ Day for the Rookie Run
MHS is taking part in the excitement surrounding the Indianapolis 500 as a sponsor of one of its popular pre-race festivities, the Chase 500 Festival Kids’ Day. It takes place on Saturday May 12th, from noon to 4 p.m. on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis. Kids’ Day is the State’s largest FREE festival for kids. You don’t want to miss the exciting activities and entertainment!
MHS is a sponsor of the Rookie Run which takes place during Kids’ Day from 1-3 p.m. at the corner of Ohio and Meridian Streets. All kids ages 3-12 are invited to participate in the Rookie Run, a non-competitive fun run encouraging kids to stay physically fit. MHS will be onsite with giveaways and health information on how kids can stay active and healthy.
The Rookie Run complements the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. All participants in the Rookie Run will receive a goodie bag, a runner’s bib with the number one and a finisher’s medal — just like the Mini-Marathon participants. Onsite registration for the Rookie Run, located in front of the Chase Tower on Ohio Street, begins at 11 a.m. and is $10 on the day of the race.
MHS members will have the opportunity to win registrations to participate in the Rookie Run through a poetry and drawing contest. MHS members ages 3 -12 are invited to write a poem or draw a picture showing how they stay active and healthy. The top winners will receive a free registration to participate in the Rookie Run.
Use your creativity, and write a poem or draw a picture that shows us how you personally stay healthy every day. Whether it’s eating foods that are good for you, exercising or playing outside — MHS wants to know how you stay healthy!
