Inland's Family Fun Series Celebration

Release Date: 08/24/2015

Inland Hospital’s LET’S GO! Family Fun Series recently wrapped up its 3rd year-long series of monthly events to help families lead active, healthy lifestyles. 

Inland’s 4th series will kick off on Saturday, September 12 at Head of Falls with a LET’S GO! Celebration and Family Fun Walk at 1pm. Join us for this free event to learn about Inland Hospital’s LET’S GO! Family Fun Series, celebrate 2014-2015, kick-off the new series with a fun walk and other activities, and register for a chance to win a $500 L.L. Bean gift card! The 2014-2015 gift card winner will be announced along with many other great giveaways and prizes! This event is a collaboration of Inland Hospital, Waterville Parks & Recreation, the Alfond Youth Center, Healthy Northern Kennebec, and many other community partners.

With 479 families participating in at least one event in the past year, and many attending several, it was a great year of active fun – from warm weather activities like swimming, paddling, hiking, disc golf and yoga to all things winter including snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, sledding, and winter biking.

Collaborating partners for the series include the Alfond Youth Center, Waterville Parks & Recreation, and many others who make it possible to link families with local resources and opportunities to enjoy free and low cost activities that encourage life-long healthy habits. In a recent survey about the series, 74% of respondents noted their family had increased their daily physical activity because of the LET’S GO! Family Fun series. Some respondent comments included: “It has allowed our kids a chance to try something they might not have a chance to do” and “It's great that this is something the community can join in together and participate with our kids for free.”
