YMCA inspires active bodies and fun at annual Healthy Kids Day®

Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Join the festivities on Saturday, April 27 at the Dale Turner Y from 10am to 1pm to celebrate fun and family. All activities are free and open to the public.

Healthy Kids Day® is a free community event at each local Y, including the Dale Turner Y in Shoreline 19290 Aurora Ave N, to inspire more kids and families to keep their minds and bodies healthy.

Healthy Kids Day is an opportunity to ignite children’s imaginations and get their bodies moving and to develop lifelong healthy habits. The event features activities such as games, arts and crafts, free snacks and healthy living demonstrations, prize drawings (including a free week to a Y summer camp), free bike helmets and shirts, and coupons for Y memberships.

“When a child is healthy, happy, and supported they can make great things happen,” says Wendy Bart, Chief Membership and Health Officer for the YMCA of Greater Seattle. 
“We believe in the potential of all children, and we strive to help kids find that potential within themselves. A child’s development is never on vacation, and Healthy Kids Day is a great opportunity to educate families and motivate kids to stay active in spirit, mind and body throughout the summer.”

Kaiser Permanente and the Physio Foundation are proud local sponsors of Healthy Kids Day in the Greater Seattle Area. Kaiser Permanente will provide free bike helmets to the first 200 kids at each of the 11 participating locations. Thanks to a generous contribution by the Physio Foundation, Y instructors will hold free compression only CPR training as well.
