YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, celebrated at over 1,300 YMCAs across the country by over 1.2 million participants, works to get more kids moving and learning, creating habits that they continue all summer long, which is a critical time for kids’ health. As spring turns to summer, Healthy Kids Day is a powerful reminder to have fun through physical activity during the upcoming summer days.
