Ankeny Family YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day April 29th4/27/2017
On April 29th, from 9am – 12pm, the Ankeny Family YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day with a free community event for kids and families. More than 1,900 YMCAs across the country are taking part in the celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer – a critical out of school time for kids. Since summer is the ideal time for kids to get up, get out and grow, Healthy Kids Day will help parents begin thinking about what their kids need to stay physically and intellectually active in the summer.
Healthy Kids Day, a national initiative of the YMCA to improve the health and well-being of kids, is filled with fun, active play and educational activities that will help parents improve their kids’ lifestyles for the long term. During Healthy Kids Day, the Ankeny Family YMCA will offer a varie-ty of healthy and active activities for the kids and families, information provided by a variety of health professionals, games, healthy snacks, and a chance to win a new bicycle.
The event is free and open to the public. We invite everyone to visit us Saturday morning and Charge Into Summer at the Ankeny Family YMCA!
