The “Ready, Set, Grow!” festival will highlight the importance of healthy lifestyles for kids with interactive dance and karate workshops, a healthy cooking demonstration, sports competitions, health and safety exhibits, and behind-the-scenes tours. Activities will also include carnival games and prizes, face painting, a magic show, a raffle drawing, refreshments and more!
Representatives from the Washington Redskins, the Washington Spirit women’s soccer team and Bethesda Big Train baseball, as well as Miss Teen Maryland, will be on hand for autographs. Local youth artists will be recognized for participation in an elementary school “healthy kids” mural competition, as well as for individual painting submissions, which may be selected to decorate patient rooms. Free parking is available.
