Healthy Kids Day is the Y's national initiative aiming to enhance health and well-being for kids and families, celebrated at over 1,500 Ys across the country by more than a million participants. When children are away from school, they can face challenges that prevent them from reaching their full potential. The Y seeks to utilize Healthy Kids Day as a springboard to help kids maintain active minds and bodies during the summer, fostering habits they can continue into the school year and beyond.

Here's to another fantastic Healthy Kids Day®! We look forward to seeing you on July 22, 2023.
