Healthy Kids Day!
On April 27, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.
This event is FREE and open to all! You do not have to be a Y Member to attend!
As spring turns to summer, Healthy Kids Day is a powerful reminder not to let children idle away their summer days. Instead, we want to focus on charging them up with enthusiasm for themselves…their potential…making this their best summer ever…by keeping kids active and learning. We know that kids gain weight faster during the summer months than during the school year. We also know that summer learning loss—a challenge for all children— is more pronounced among students from low-income neighborhoods. A child’s development is never on vacation and Healthy Kids Day is a great opportunity to educate families and motivate kids to stay active in spirit, mind and body throughout the summer. HEALTHY KIDS, MAKE SURE TO GET YOUR SWAG BAG! Make sure to visit the registration table to receive your Healthy Kids Day Passport & Healthy Kids Day swag bag! Once you’ve completed your passport return to registration to be entered into our raffle for YMCA prizes!
