The event, called “Healthy Me!” will take place on Saturday, August 27th from 10 am to 1 pm at Savannah Children’s Museum, 655 Louisville Rd. Savannah, GA 31401.
“CHS hosts this event as a part of our ‘whole child’ approach to education because healthy children are able to engage and learn more effectively,” says Coastal Heritage Society CEO, Sandra Baxter. “Healthy Me! is a terrific event where kids and their families can have a great time while acquiring good health habits that will lead to a lifetime of wellness and learning.”
Many of our community partners will be on-site, including Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry with a dinosaur brushing activity, Georgia Bikes will have bike safety information and a fun balance bike obstacle course, Memorial Health Dwaine and Cynthia Willett Children’s Hospital will have a registered dietitian talking about healthy lunches and infused water, Black’s Tropical Homestead will share tips on growing fruits and vegetables at home, Soccer Shots will have soccer activities, and Mercer Medical School will host a teddy bear clinic with Hugaroo’s stuffed animals. Savannah Children’s Museum educators will be leading health and wellness-themed activities throughout the day as well.
