Healthy Kids Day returns to Marysville YMCA April 28

MARYSVILLE — On Saturday, April 28, the Marysville YMCA will join all four other Snohomish County YMCAs in celebrating Healthy Kids Day with a free community event designed to help families find fun through active play and educational opportunities, to improve health and well-being.

As part of the Y's commitment to strengthening community by addressing critical gaps in health and education, Healthy Kids Day will encourage kids and parents to commit to keeping their bodies and minds active now and throughout the summer.

Healthy Kids Day is the nation's largest health day for kids. The Y will feature activities to engage families in physical activity such as family games, healthy family activities, water safety skills, fitness testing, nutrition information, and dental, vision and hearing screenings, as well as community information for support and help in many areas.

Healthy Kids Day takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Marysville YMCA, located at 6420 60th Dr. NE. For more information, call 360-653-9622 or log onto www.ymca-snoco.org/hkd.
