On Saturday, April 25, 2015, (some April 24) your local YMCA invites all families in the Chicagoland area to participate in YMCA Healthy Kids Day, the nation’s largest free health and fitness day for kids and families. YMCA Healthy Kids Day is filled with free fun, engaging and creative activities that foster healthy living, and is a part of the YMCA’s larger efforts to help more kids and families become physically active. See below for your location or visit HERE for City YMCAs and visit HERE for Suburban YMCA.

 

free healthy kids day april 17Before MP3 players and video games ruled playtime, children enjoyed simple activities like jump rope, hopscotch and tag. As engagement in these “old-school” games decreased, the waistline of America’s children increased — one in three is obese or overweight due to inactivity, overeating and poor nutrition. On YMCA Healthy Kids Day, Ys are encouraging children and families to get back to the basics of play and to get moving!

 

YMCA Healthy Kids Day, the largest health day in the nation for children and families, combines making physical activity fun with helping families achieve year-long wellness, weight-loss, fitness, and healthy living. More than a half million people from across the country are expected to attend. Nearly 1,500 free events will have a variety of activities designed to help children explore creative, imaginative and simple ways to play, such as relay races, bounce houses, rock wall climbing and face painting. All events are free and open to the public.

All activities are free and open to the public.  For more information, please contact your local YMCA or visit www.ymca.net
