Healthy Kids Day

This event is cancelled for 2020 in light of the Coronavirus Pandemic.

 

This FREE community-wide event takes place to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active all summer long! The annual YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day® is the Y’s national initiative to improve health and well-being for kids and families.

Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at over 1,200 Ys across the country by over one million participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits that they continue all summer long. When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Research shows that without access to out-of-school learning activities, kids fall behind academically. Kids also gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. As spring turns to summer, Healthy Kids Day is a powerful reminder not to let children idle away their summer days. Instead, the Y wants families to focus on helping children imagine what they can accomplish over the summer.
