National Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA

Sunday, April 4, 2010

The Dale Turner Family YMCA invites kids and families to participate in National Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 17. This free community event promotes one hour of physical activity per day for children.

Every spring, the Dale Turner Family YMCA invites all children and families throughout the community to participate in Healthy Kids Day, a free national event to promote health and wellness for kids and families. Fun activities and games are available for kids, as well as health and wellness resources for families; and a grand prize raffle drawing for a free family membership to the Dale Turner Family YMCA.

Healthy Kids Day will take place on Saturday, April 17 from 10 am to 1 pm and is free and open to the public.

The event will feature live performances, carnival games, activities on the climbing wall and in the pool, obstacle courses, arts and crafts, healthy cooking demonstrations; and a special appearance by the Seattle Storm.

The first 100 children will receive a free t-shirt and membership joining fees will be waived 100%, from April 16-18 to encourage families to be active together, year round.

Experts say school-age kids should engage in physical activities for at least one hour every day to be healthy. Studies show that almost two-thirds of our nation's youth are not getting the suggested amount of physical activity for good health.

Healthy Kids Day at the Dale Turner Family YMCA is made possible by Presenting Sponsor, Carter Subaru, and the additional support of community partners Edmonds Family Medicine and Molina Health Care.

For more information, call 206-363-0446 or visit the DaleTurnerYMCA for more information. The Dale Turner YMCA is located at 192nd and Aurora.
