Children running through a field at a YMCA Healthy Kids Day event

YMCA Healthy Kids Day

Celebrated by most YMCAs on Sunday, April 30, 2017*.

Join us in celebrating YMCA Healthy Kids Day, a national day dedicated to improving the health and well-being of kids. A FREE event for everyone in the community, participating YMCAs will be open to the public with fun and healthy activities for the entire family.

And in honour of Canada’s 150th Anniversary we are celebrating LocalMOTION Live! at Healthy Kids Day on Sunday, April 30. Participate in a fun activity for your chance to win prizes including VIA Rail’s “The Canadian Trip” for four. Only participants at Healthy Kids Day on Sunday, April 30 are eligible to enter the YMCA LocalMOTION Challenge.

Year-round the YMCA advocates for and supports the development of happy and healthy children, but we highlight and engage families around the issue on this day.
