HEALTHY KIDS DAY® | YMCA of South Hampton Roads
Help Desk Software

Saturday, April 29, 2017
9am - 12pm • All YMCA locations

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. On April 29, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.
