Because active kids need wholesome fuel for their playground adventures, our Official Snack Sponsor GoGo squeeZ will provide samples of their scrumptiously squeezable YogurtZ pouches at every stop on our tour. YogurtZ is “So Cool, It Doesn’t Have To Be Cold.”  First come, first served – supplies are limited. 

Please give a round of applause to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for making this year’s tour possible.  Parents will get to meet with folks from both Advocate Condell Medical Center and Advocate Children’s Hospital to learn about the resources available to support your family’s health.

As if you needed more reason to join us, your kids will have a chance to test out Stomp Rocket, the original 100% KID-powered rockets for active, outdoor fun. Run, jump, STOMP and send your rockets up to 400 feet in the air.  We’ll select one lucky winner to receive a Stomp Rocket of their own at every stop on our tour!

Finally, our first 100 registered guests who check-in at Tour Stop #1 will receive a card good for one complimentary fountain drink with entree purchase at Roti Modern Mediterranean with suburban locations in Vernon Hills, Deerfield, Northbrook and coming soon to Kildeer.
