Get ready for summer – the time of year when kids love being outdoors and parents want them to grow and learn. The YMCA initiative to promote healthier kids takes place Saturday, April 25, 2015.
Since kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies, the YMCA wants to make a difference. Healthy Kids Day is holding FREE community events to kids and families. Kids can enjoy fun, active lay and educational opportunities. Parents can learn how to keep kids moving, engaged, growing, and learning all summer long.

“The YMCA is about ‘more’. The more support, guidance and opportunities we give kids…the more amazing qualities they’ll get out. The more they get out, the more they can achieve growing up. That’s why we provide kids a healthy, caring environment of fun, learning and belonging to help them reach their fullest potential.”
And that’s why they celebrate Healthy Kids Day, their biggest day of the year devoted to kids and MORE! Over 1,300 Ys across the country are taking part in Healthy Kids Day, holding FREE community events that are open to all kids and families and filled with fun, active play and educational opportunities.
