Mayo Clinic Sibshops to offer 'Family Sibshops: Wild Night Out'

6/14/2022

Sibshops

Mayo Clinic Sibshops supports siblings who have a brother or sister with a chronic illness, lifelong health concern or disability. The program brings these siblings together to express the good and bad about having a brother or sister with special health concerns — and to have a day that focuses on them. 

Events are held multiple times a year. Each even has a fun theme to get participants involved and supported by their peers. 

The next event will be "Family Sibshops: Wild Night Out." This event will be held Aug. 17 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Oxbow Park & Zollman Zoo, 5731 County Road 105 NW, in Byron, Minnesota. The cost to register is $10. Scholarships are available upon request. 

A Chick-fil-A food truck will serve dinner, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Refer to their online menu regarding dietary restrictions. Family activities will follow dinner.
