Olbrich Gardens - Polar Dash

We haven't been to this event, but it sounds like great fun!

Saturday, January 17, 2009 Olbrich Gardens - 10 a.m. to Noon

From Olbrich & Physician's Plus websites:

Physician's Plus and Olbrich Botanical Gardens partner to host this fun family event to keep kids active and healthy during the cold winter months.

Children 12 and under can give sled rides to plush polar bears from 10 a.m. until noon as they dash around Olbrich’s outdoor course. Participants in the plush polar bear sled dash will be entered in drawings to win great prizes, including the sleds used to tow their toy companions, plus one family of up to five will win a weekend stay at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva. Since even the biggest outdoor enthusiast needs to take the chill off eventually, Olbrich Botanical Gardens will offer indoor activities, and healthy treats will be provided by Bluephies.

After the Polar Dash, it's time to warm up inside with hot cider, healthy snacks, games, and a trip through the tropical Bolz Conservatory. A great outing to encourage kids to get out, get active, and get healthy.
