The YMCA of Greater Seattle is hosting the Y's annual Healthy Kids Day®, presented by UnitedHealthcare and Coordinated Care, on Saturday, April 29, from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at locations across King County

This free, annual event features a variety of family-friendly activities to encourage healthy kids, healthy families, and a healthy start to the summer season. 

"It is so important for kids to stay active over the summer, both physically and mentally," said Tina Vincent, Association Sr. Director of Youth and Family Programs "At YMCA of Greater Seattle, we strive to empower families by offering resources that enable their children to reach their full potential year-round. As part of our strategic plan, Vision 2025, we aim to provide inclusive and accessible opportunities that promote Whole Person Health. Healthy Kids Day does just that. It's a fantastic community-wide event that encourages families to explore and make the most of the Y's incredible resources." 

Healthy Kids Day's mission is to turn fun and play into lifelong memories. Some featured activities include healthy snack demonstrations, water safety, prizes, summer camp crafts, sports challenges, bounce houses, and more.
