OAK BROOK, Ill. - Hundreds of kids will be a-moving and a-grooving with Ronald McDonald during Loyola Kids Day Celebration this Saturday, June 21, at Oakbrook Center in Oak Brook.

Ronald will lead kids in vigorous and fun workouts during his "Get Moving With Ronald" fitness sessions, which include magic, music, dancing and games that teach families the importance of fitness and physical activity in everyday life. Kids will also have the chance to meet Ronald and have a photograph taken with him for free.
The event will also include giveaways of photo frames, face painting and coloring activities. Parents will receive brochures about the pediatric services offered at the Loyola Center for Childrenâs Health at Oakbrook Terrace, which is an extension of the Ronald McDonald Childrenâs Hospital of Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood.
