School’s out and it’s time to relax, decompress and have fun with friends. Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. 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 27, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

This FREE family event will feature guest speakers, fun activities such as relay races and an obstacle course, and informational booths from local organizations all focused on providing kids of all ages the opportunity to stay active in hopes of strengthening our community. The event will take place in the parking lot of the Y (if rain, the event will take place in the gym at the Y).

A special thank you to Dennis Cable, Ryan, Benjamin, and Weston Schmitt.
