On April 27, 2019 the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. 

This event is free and open to the public!

Here is just a sample of some of the exciting activities we have planned:

Healthy Kids Day is a national initiative that aims to get more children moving and learning so they can keep up the habit all summer long—a critical out-of-school time for kids’ health. When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles or gaps related to hunger, water safety, learning, safe spaces to play and health, which prevent them from reaching their full potential. Each year, the Y helps over 9 million youth nationwide “hop the gap” and achieve more by providing a safe to place to learn, stay healthy and build friendships. This year, nearly 1,300 Ys across the country will celebrate Healthy Kids Day.
