ARMONK, N.Y. -- It's time for your checkup, Westchester. White Plains Hospital, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and Equinox Fitness Club are partnering to celebrate the one year anniversary of WPH's Medical and Wellness facility in Armonk with a Family Fun Day on Saturday Oct. 1.
Children can enjoy a day of fun-filled activities including a visit to the Ted E. Bear clinic, which uses stuffed animals to explain how to treat a variety of “boo boo's” and alleviate fears for children surrounding medical care. The first 100 children will receive a free teddy bear to take home. Burke’s Armonk Outpatient Clinic will host the ThinkFirst Injury Prevention Clinic and distribute free bike helmets.
Equinox will also be on hand, offering an array of classes and demonstrations to help families get active and stay in shape. For those looking to really break a sweat, the Armonk Fire Department will be running an obstacle course as fun as it is challenging. The Police Department will be providing car seat safety checks as well.
The new state-of- the-art White Plains Hospital Medical & Wellness facility will be on open for tours with physician meet-and- greets. Mammogram scheduling and on-site flu shots will also be available. The afternoon also includes live music, balloon sculpture, raffles, giveaways, food and pumpkin painting, courtesy of DeCicco & Sons.
The event will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the 99 Business Park Drive parking lot and is free and open to the public.
Guests are asked to bring canned goods for donation to the Armonk Food Bank. A rain date is set for Oct. 2. For more information call (914) 681-2628.
