Recap: Healthy Kids Day 2024

Here’s to another amazing Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago! 

We had a great time celebrating healthy bodies and healthy minds with the Y community last month. A nationwide YMCA initiative, Healthy Kids Day aims to improve the health and wellbeing of youth and families through free community events, inspiring people of all ages to stay active throughout the summer months and beyond. 

This year, YMCA of Metro Chicago Community Hubs opened their doors for a free day of play for everyone. Additionally, we hosted family-friendly events across our association, featuring fantastic guests and activities, such as basketball tournaments, bounce houses, healthy snacks, arts and crafts, and so, SO much more. 

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Healthy Kids Day events! At the Y, we strive to be the head, heart, and home of our community, empowering all people — starting with our youngest — to thrive, make healthy decisions, and discover new ways of having fun. 

Additional thanks to all of our partners, community supporters, and YMCA staff. Your dedication to the Y’s mission of strengthening community by connecting all people to their purpose, potential, and each other is felt across our association.
