2nd Annual Wellness Resource Fair

Join us at the 2nd annual Wellness Resource Fair on April 20, organized by the United Palatine Coalition's Wellness Team in collaboration with the Buehler YMCA. The event will coincide with Healthy Kids Day and is open to everyone in Palatine and surrounding areas from 9 a.m. to noon. Best of all, admission is FREE!


More than 40 local providers and organizations will participate in the upcoming event, bringing their expertise to promote wellness and connect community members to valuable resources. This year, the event has expanded its focus to include healthy activities for all ages. It's a perfect opportunity to participate in gentle yoga, family Zumba, total body fitness, open swimming, art therapy, healthy snacks, and craft tables. 


Don't miss out on educational workshops promoting positive mental health for parents, caregivers, and individuals. Attend presentations on bike safety, overdose and naloxone education, and money-saving tech skills that help you cut the cord from traditional cable TV and switch to video streaming services. Health screenings for blood pressure, glucose, and vision tests will also be offered. Take part in a Scavenger Hunt to earn a ticket and a chance to win raffle prizes. 


If you're interested in a free all-day pass to the Buehler YMCA, this is your chance. You can explore the Family Adventure Center, take a dip into the pool during open swim, and tour the facility. Additionally, the Joiner's Fee will be waived if you decide to become a member. For those interested in preschool or kindergarten, classroom tours will be given. Those who register for the Fall, will receive a 10% discount.

The event is a joint effort made possible by UPC, the Buehler YMCA, CCSD15, community organizations, and volunteers. Email Beth Sousa at bsousa@palatinelibrary.org for more information.
