Healthy Kids Day
Schedule of Events (click poster)
The majority of children and youth in Canada are not getting adequate access to opportunities for active recreation and healthy living. Only 7% of Canadian children and youth are meeting Canada's guidelines of 60 minutes of physical activity a day (Source: 2013 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card). Rising rates of obesity and related chronic disease tell us that getting kids healthy should be a top priority.
The YMCA believes healthy kids are the foundation and future of healthy communities. That's why we offer programming and advocate year round for the healthy growth of children and youth in spirit, mind and body. Every year over 29,000 children, teens and young adults take part in health, fitness and aquatics programs at YMCAs in Canada.
Raising healthy children is a community effort, and the YMCA is your community partner in nurturing the potential of kids.
Join us on Sunday, April 29th for an engaging day of fun and exciting activities for holistic health!
