Healthy Kids Day at the Y @ Irving Park YMCA | Chicago | Illinois | United States

Each summer, children gain weight two to three times faster than they do during the school year, and often fall behind academically because they don’t have access to out-of-school learning opportunities.

With that in mind, on Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., the Irving Park YMCA is hosting a variety of family-friendly activities for the YMCA’s 26th annual Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids and families. Healthy Kids Day® is a powerful reminder not to let children idle away their summer days.

Activities at the Irving Park YMCA will include:

  • Jumping Jack Challenge
  • “Push-Ups for Popcorn”
  • “Apple Race Car” Snacks
  • Super Ninja Challenge
  • “Day in the Life of a Lifeguard” Station
  • Health & Wellness Booths
