Family-friendly, health-focused event celebrates dads

Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital announces its eighth annual Father’s Day Family Health Event Saturday, June 15. The health fair and family-friendly celebration features fun, informative and interactive activities focused on fitness and well-being, and provides education to help men stay healthy all year long.

This year’s event is from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., located at AL!VE in Charlotte, Mich. It kicks off with the Charlotte Brewing Company’s first annual Frosty Mug Fun Run, as well as Yoga on the Lawn, both which will raise funds for Charlotte’s Beach Market, a public outdoor venue that is undergoing renovations this summer. Interested participants can register for these events by searching “Frosty Mug Fun Run” at runsignup.com.

Families can also enjoy a multitude of free activities including Father’s Day shopping at Playmakers’ Satellite Store, talking with medical experts in the health fair area, signing up for chair massages, participating in the Dad Olympics by Kositchek’s, as well as the golf swing analysis by Maple Brook Golf Club, a putting contest, children’s activities such as an inflatable obstacle course, and a summer cookout featuring Mooville ice cream. There will also be beer tasting by Charlotte Brewing Company, door prizes and the first 150 dads will receive a free gift.
