YMCAs Across U.S. Announce Healthy Kids Day

10 Apr, 2014

April 26 Event Meant to Highlight Community Centers for Children’s Activities, Sports, Recreation

On Saturday, April 26, 2014, YMCAs across America will be celebrating Healthy Kids Day®, the national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. The event has the goal of introducing parents and children to activities available at their local community centers.

The YMCA website notes,

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. Join Us at a Participating Y.

Over 1,500 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. Build A Happier, Healthier Kid based on the incredible potential inside your child. Visit Find a Y to locate an event in your community.
