Free and open to the public, this annual event features a day of fun-filled activities to celebrate kids being kids.
The YMCA of South Florida is hosting the Y’s annual Healthy Kids Day® on Saturday April 29, at 9:00 am – 12:00 pm in 7 locations across Broward and Miami-Dade. 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 Sheryl Woods, President and CEO of the YMCA of South Florida. “At the Y, we believe in providing resources to families to ensure that their children have access to what they need to reach their full potential, no matter the time of year. Healthy Kids Day is a fun, free community-wide event that encourages families to take advantage of all the great summer resources that the Y has to offer.”
Healthy Kids Day’s mission is to turn fun and play into lifelong memories. Activities include sports and wellness demonstrations, bounce houses and slides, music with live DJs, community partner vendors, carnival games, food trucks, and much more. Attendees can also register for summer camp onsite and save with early bird pricing.
Locally, Healthy Kids Day is sponsored by Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, Miami Marlins, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and Publix Charities.
