Healthy Kid’s Day

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. On April 21, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. Every Y in Delaware will provide a free event full of family fun for the whole community (open to non-members)!

Join in the fun by stopping by any
of the branches listed below on
Saturday, April 21, 2018!

All attendees will receive a free drawstring backpack courtesy of Nemours.
