On April 28, the Greater Naples YMCA will celebrate Healthy Kids Day with a free community event for kids and families in Collier County. More than 1,900 Ys across the country are taking part in the celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer.
Healthy Kids Day, a national initiative of the Y to improve the health and well-being of kids, is filled with fun, active play and educational activities that will help parents improve their kids’ lifestyles for the long term. Research shows that without access to activities that stimulate the mind and body, kids are more prone to gain weight and fall behind academically over the summer months.
The YMCA’s event will take place at the Greater Naples YMCA at 5450 YMCA Road from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and will feature activities such as class demonstrations and activities; games and bounce houses; arts and crafts; and many community vendors.
For more information, contact the Greater Naples YMCA at 239-597-3148 or visit www.ymcapalms.org.
