Healthy Kids Day
Sunday April 28, 2019 10 am-3 pm
The health of Canadian children is a serious matter.
YMCA Healthy Kids Day is seriously fun!
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 YMCA Healthy Kids Day is a national day dedicated to improving the health and well-being of kids across Canada.
On Sunday, April 28th participating YMCAs open their doors even wider, encouraging families of all shapes and sizes to discover how simple and fun healthy living can be with the YMCA as their partner.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.
YMCA Healthy Kids Day is a free annual community event hosted by YMCAs across Canada in April. An action-packed event for the entire family, YMCA Healthy Kids Day places special emphasis on how healthy living can be fun and providing families with simple tips and resources to live healthy every day.
Raising healthy children is a community effort, and the YMCA is your community partner in nurturing the potential of kids.
