Crouse Hospital is now Central New York’s exclusive Spirit of Women hospital, and on Saturday, June 7, the community is invited to help the hospital kickoff this innovative new program with a free event, Day of Dance…For Your Health.
The hospital is asking folks to twirl on in to the DestinyUSA Canyon that day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to meet the official event hostess, 93Q’s Amy Robbins, and watch and try some heart healthy dances and movement activities. The free event will feature dance demonstrations and lessons, giveaways, drawings for door prizes, complementary snacks and beverages, activities for children and more.
Crouse physicians and other health providers also will be on hand to answer questions, and let you try out the da Vinci robot, used in various robotic surgeries at Crouse. Learn more about the hospital’s programs and services, and discover ways to improve cardiac health with free blood pressure and pulse checks and cardiac health risk assessments. Natur-Tyme will be at the event as well, providing health and wellness tips.
Although the event is free, pre-registration is requested. Anyone who pre-registers here online or calls 315/472-2464 by June 6 will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Destiny USA gift card.
Seven dance demonstrations and movement activities by local groups will take place during the course of the three-hour event, including Zumba, Tai Chi, Jazz and Ballroom styles. A fun Kids Zone, including Build-a-Bear and the Crouse Teddy Bear PromptCare clinic, will feature interactive activities to help children learn more about health and wellness. The first 100 children to visit Crouse Hospital’s teddy bear nurse experts will receive a complimentary stuffed bear in a tee shirt. Also, Professor Wonder from Wonderworks and a few other surprise characters, will be on hand to lead a bean bag toss with prizes for the winners.
