Turkey Trot and Luminary Walk Gets You Outside at NorthPointe

Monday, November 04, 2013






NorthPointe Health and Wellness Campus in Roscoe has two family-friendly events coming soon. Both events get you and your family outside to enjoy the fresh air and stay active.

The first event on the schedule is NorthPointe’s Turkey Trot on Thursday, November 28th, a 5K Run or 1 mile Run/Walk along NorthPointe’s 2.5 miles of prairie walkways. This is the Turkey Trot’s fifth year and they are expecting a great turnout. In 2013, over 600 people participated!

"People love the idea of doing something active before the big meal on Thanksgiving," comments Gus Larson, NorthPointe Campus Director. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. and you can find more information on the www.NorthPointeWellness.org website.

The second event is NorthPointe’s 6 anniversary celebration on Friday, December 6th from 4-7 p.m. Families of all ages will enjoy the free event, including the traditional Merry Prairie Luminary Walk, a beautiful outdoor stroll around the pond surrounded by hundreds of glowing luminaries.

"We will also offer some of our family favorites like the horse drawn carriage rides and outdoor fire-roasted treats," explains Gus Larson, NorthPointe Campus Director.

"It’s one of our favorite annual holiday events," comments Stacey Miller, Roscoe resident. "I’ve taken my children on the walk several times and they love following the glow of the luminaries."

The Merry Prairie Luminary Walk is a half-mile paved outdoor walk around NorthPointe’s pond and waterfall. The paved path will be lined with over 500 glowing luminaries and the air will be filled with holiday music. Horse-drawn carriage rides around the beautiful natural prairie will be available starting around 3:30 p.m. until dusk.

NorthPointe Campus includes Immediate Care, Physician Clinics, Spa, Diagnostics, Sports Medicine and therapies and the popular Wellness Center. The Wellness Center is membership based and includes two beautiful indoor pools. Tours of the campus will be available if visitors would like to find out more. In addition, NorthPointe Wellness is offering a $6 enrollment special for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 6-8 (some restrictions apply). The enrollment savings is $94 on a single membership in honor of NorthPointe’s 6 anniversary.

The celebration will include tasty refreshments and drawings for prizes. For more information about the anniversary celebration and Merry Prairie Luminary Walk, please call 815-525-4000. NorthPointe is located near the Southwest corner of East Rockton and Willowbrook Roads in Roscoe.
