Children’s Therapy Snowflake Festival

Every December, the Bloomington Hospital Foundation presents the Snowflake Festival for the children and families of IU Health Children’s Therapy. This holiday event is designed specifically to meet the needs of the children served by the center. There are crafts, games, food, singing, a visit with Santa, and walk around costume characters. It is a very meaningful holiday event for patients, families, volunteers and staff.

IU Health Children’s Therapy provides advanced and comprehensive pediatric rehabilitation services, including physical, occupational and speech-language therapy, as well as social services for children, birth through adolescence.

This year’s event – the 20th festival! – will take place on Saturday, December 9. It is free of charge to all families of Children’s Therapy thanks in part to presenting sponsor IU Credit Union as well as the Foundation’s generous donors.
