Blast into Summer with 27th Annual Healthy Kids Day

February 26, 2018


On April 21, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids."

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. School's out and it's time to relax, decompress and have fun with friends. 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.

On Saturday, April 21, 2018, the YMCAs across Chicagoland will celebrate Healthy Kids Day ®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. In the next few weeks, we’ll have more details about what’s happening at each center, including plenty of family-friendly games and activities.

This event is free and open to the public!

Healthy Kids Day ® is also a great opportunity for your business to support a worthy cause, and your involvement will help to make this year's event special and successful. To find out more about sponsoring Healthy Kids Day, contact one of our YMCAs near your business.
