Disclosure: This post is in partnership with the YMCA of Greater Toronto. As always, opinions are all mine.
As parents, we always want what’s best for our children, right? We want to make sure we are spending as much quality time with our kids as possible, making sure they are eating right, getting the most exercise they need and living a happy and fulfilled life. As parents, we try to make sure we are doing all these things all of the time. We also want to make sure we are living in healthy communities that our kids can be happy and grow up in which means participating in building those healthy communities.
Kids need tons of physical activity: it sets them up for a lifetime of good health and decreases risk for countless diseases and conditions (and helps them burn off their seemingly endless energy). Healthy Kids Day is coming up – April 29th, 2018!
This YMCA celebration was built to help families get active together and introduce them to the endless array of fun stuff they can do to get those crucial sixty minutes of daily exercise. With organized activities for the whole family participating in your local YMCA Healthy Kids Day events will give the family something to do together, and you’ll meet others in the community! The YMCA is the place for families and community members to gather, have fun and connect with each other and to provide healthy, engaging and memorable experiences during YMCA Healthy Kids Day events.
This year, the YMCA GTA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day by opening their doors and welcoming kids, youth, and families to join them for an afternoon filled with fun, FREE activities. If you like what you see, they’ll waive your join fee! Get your Y membership while you’re there enjoying all of these free activities!
