60 Minutes of Play Every Day

Are you missing your favorite sports? Do you need a friend to help motivate you to get moving and playing? Join us for the YPlay Challenge from July 27 through July 31 to encourage physically active kids!

Playful movement is one of the keys to a healthy family home. It doesn't matter what you choose to do. As long as your arms and legs are moving, it's good for you! To get 60 minutes of activity throughout your day just add ten minutes here and fifteen minutes there. It adds up and it all counts, so get playing!
