It’s back! After a hiatus in 2020 due to COVID-19, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine will host three Healthy Kids Day® events on Saturday, April 24 from 10 AM – 1 PM. All are invited to attend!
Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, reminds every one of the importance of staying active. One in three children in the U.S. is obese, and when summertime hits, kids are often more idle. Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast.
