YMCA's Nation-wide celebrate Healthy Kids Day

Posted: Updated:

Children are running, jumping, and best of all... laughing, as they celebrate Healthy Kids Day at the Y. M. C. A.

Y. M. C. A. ‘s nation-wide are urging children and families to live a healthier lifestyle, with the celebration of Healthy Kids Day.

Wellness Director, Lola Gonzales, says the Y. M. C. A.'s goal is to promote activity in the summer months, because playing and learning shouldn't take a break when school does.

Gonzales reminds parents that while exercise and activity are important for children's development, so is time spent with family.

"Watching the growth of family and children together, that is really important to me," says Gonzales.  "When it comes to family and kid's health, it's very important.  Because I know it starts at the home."

Since 1995, the Y. M. C. A. has been celebrating Healthy Kids Day in an effort to improve the health and well being of our nation's kids.
