{Event Recap}: Hanging with Heroes

We had so much fun at our Hanging with Heroes event with Total Rejuvenation, and Trinity Lutheran School! The weather was absolutely gorgeous and over 100 kids and their families had a blast visiting with local heroes, doing fun activities, bouncing in the bounce house, and playing on the playground!

The Event Location

A huge thanks to our host for the event, Trinity Lutheran School! Their space was perfect for the event and their staff was so friendly and incredibly easy to work with! We loved the fun superhero mask coloring activity they provided at the kids tables! Be sure to visit their website for more information about Trinity Lutheran School’s academic offerings for kids in preschool-8th grade!

Our Co-Host

We loved the super fun giant Connect 4 game that our friends at Total Rejuvenation brought to the event! If you’re interested in finding out more about Total Rejuvenation’s services, including cryotherapy, floatation therapy, and halo therapy, visit their website

The Heroes

We are so thankful to have so many amazing heroes in our community who are dedicated to keeping us safe and healthy! We loved getting to visit with some of our local heroes and checking out their rescue vehicles, including the Cedar Rapids Police Department, Linn County Sheriff’s Office, Area Ambulance Service, and LifeGuard Air Ambulance. Seeing the helicopter land and take off was a special treat!

The Fun

Families had so much fun coloring superhero masks with Trinity Lutheran School, playing Connect 4 with Total Rejuvenation, making stress balls with Murray, Wilson, & Rose Counseling LLC, doing yoga with Toula Yoga, making bead necklaces and checking out books with Usborne Books by Alyssa Levisay, finding hidden treasures with Iowa EyeCare, hanging out with Kirby Kangaroo and playing bean bag toss with Collins Community Credit Union, doing fun math activities with Mathnasium, making egg shakers with Music Speaks Therapy, exercising with The M.A.C., taking photos in the photo booth sponsored by Valentine Insurance Agency, and bouncing in the bounce house from Bounce Party Supplies
