Help us reach 1.5 million jumping jacks for our Healthy Kids Day Jumping Jack Challenge

March 29, 2016


Get a head start on a healthy summer, April 25-30"

This April, children and families across the country will celebrate Healthy Kids Day® at the Y. But here in Chicago, we’re doing something special to help kids get a head start on a healthy, active summer: the Healthy Kids Day® Jumping Jack Challenge.

During the week leading up to Healthy Kids Day® (Monday, April 25 through Saturday, April 30), all YMCA of Metro Chicago centers will work together to reach the YMCA of Metro Chicago Association goal of completing a collective 1.5 million jumping jacks. To participate, you and your child can complete as many jumping jacks as you like, in three different ways:

All participants will receive a Healthy Kids Day® Jumping Jack Challenge certificate, and the participant at each YMCA center with the highest number of jumping jacks will receive a free, exclusive pedometer. And don’t forget to join us at your local center for Healthy Kids Day® on April 29 or 30.
