As we move into a new month and a new season, get a mental reset with this self-guided half-mile stroll through downtown Aurora. You'll stop along the way to do 5 fun and mindful activities that will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed, and grounded.
In October, The Perch turns 5! We're celebrating this milestone with a special event with fun activities for adults and kids alike. You'll walk around Downtown Aurora doing a variety of fun and mindful activities. When you complete all the activities and turn in your card, you'll be entered to win a raffle basket!
Plus, you'll enjoy coffee and refreshments, and you'll get a bag of goodies (including coupons from other local businesses) just for registering! Registration is $19 per adult. Children are free and do not need to register. (Children do not get a bag of goodies but do get a special kid activity card.)
Start times are staggered to create a nice flow without too much backup at the different activity stations. That said, they are not written in stone, so please feel free to come even if you're running early or late.
As a fun bonus for this special anniversary event, you can add-on a limited edition shirt added just for this event (see images for early mockup to give you an idea). This soft unisex adult-sized T-shirt features a hand-drawn floral design and the words: Let the good things grow. When you purchase this limited edition shirt, you'll receive it on October 1 when you check in.
It's all happening Saturday, October 1 from 9-12!
Help me celebrate being in business for 5 years by coming out October 1!
This event is generously sponsored by Aurora Downtown.
What will we do during the mindfulness walk?
You'll walk around downtown Aurora to several stations where you'll be invited to do simple activities that encourage gratitude, mindfulness, and creativity. Once you've completed them all, return your provided card to be entered to win a raffle basket! The path is paved and safe for walkers, wheelchairs, and motorized chairs.
Is this mindfulness walk only for adults?
No! Please feel free to bring children with (strollers welcome!). Children are free and do not need to register. At check in, they will receive a card with some additional kid-friendly activities they can do.
What kind of shirt is it?
Shirts were designed by Amy Jackson by hand drawing the image and text. The are screen printed by The Yetee in Aurora, IL on soft heather gray unisex shirts and available in sizes S-XL.
