Meet Active Alex!
Holdon Cherrone, age 3 of Springfield created the winning name for the City of Springfield's Healthy Body Gallery. Active Alex is a simple name that sums it all. Gender neutral and encompasses Kidzeum's mission of creating active kids so they can learn life long skills to grow into healty adults. Holdon and his family won a one-year family membership to Kidzeum.
Construction has begun!
Demolition of the interior of the buildings at 412, 414 and 416 E. Adams has begun. Visit Kidzeum's Facebook page to get photos of Kidzeum's transformation.
Kidzeum still has $450,000 left to raise so that we can open our doors with three months of operational costs and be debt free. When you are shopping online, please consider using Amazon Smile. Shopping you are already doing can help generate funds for Kidzeum!
