Kid’s Bike & Fitness Day offered at Midway Village on July 17

Free admission, refreshments and prize drawings; fun for kids of all ages

Local families are invited to attend the second annual Kid’s Bike & Fitness Day on the grounds of Midway Village Museum at 6799 Guilford Road from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 17. The event is sponsored by State Representative Joe Sosnowski, R-Rockford, in an effort to promote healthy outdoor recreational activities for local youth.

“Kids can have fun outside this summer at one of the Stateline’s most enjoyable recreational settings,” Rep. Sosnowski said. “Our Kid’s Bike & Fitness Day is a great way to experience Midway Village and show off your bike. We’re also making this an opportunity to support two outstanding local nonprofits in our community; the Rockford Rescue Mission and the Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford.”  

Children must bring their own bikes to participate in the Kid’s Bike & Fitness Day. Youth are invited to challenge themselves to see how many times they can ride around the course on their bike, with prizes awarded for most laps. Complimentary State of Illinois bike trail maps and brochures on state programs will also be available.

Families are encouraged to bring canned food items to benefit the Rockford Rescue Mission and/or baby items to benefit the Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. Baby items must be new and in their original packaging, please. Families who donate canned food or baby items will be entered into a drawing to win a new kids’ bicycle or gift basket. Additional raffle tickets to increase your chances of winning one of the prize drawings can be obtained by making a cash donation to benefit either the Rockford Rescue Mission or Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford.

For questions or more information, please call Representative Sosnowski’s office at (815) 547-3436.
