PUT PLAY IN YOUR DAY: Healthy Kids Day

Healthy Kids Day!
Saturday, May 21
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Ypsilanti High School, 2095 Packard Road (map)

On Saturday, May 21, the YMCA is encouraging all kids and parents in Ypsilanti to get together for a play date and commit to being active every day. It’s all part of the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day™ – the nation’s largest health day for families.

As a leading charitable organization, the Y holds Healthy Kids Day to teach healthy habits to kids and inspire a lifetime love of physical activity. At a time when one in three children in the United States are overweight or obese (according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), developing healthier habits that include increased physical activity is more important than ever.
