Healthy Kids Day®

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 weight and fall behind in studies. On April 21st, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. Join us at one of our branches as we celebrate Healthy Kids Day with FREE community events on Saturday, April 21st!
