YMCA Celebrates ‘Healthy Kids Day’ Across the Nation

YMCA’s across the nation are promoting healthy and active lifestyles with Healthy Kids Day.

Today marks the initiative’s 30th anniversary.

The Grand Traverse Bay YMCA encouraged parents to bring in their kids for a day of fun, family activities.

Parents were thankful for the opportunity to let their young ones try everything—from dancing to swimming to basketball.

“It kind of just sets the tone for what’s expected or what’s just normal, which is just getting out and doing stuff and it’s going to be hard to keep them [inside], because they’re used to getting outside and doing stuff!” said Traverse City Parent Andy Hoort.

YMCA encourages all parents to get involved with their kids and treat everyday like it’s Healthy Kids Day.
