A tummy full of healthy food. A cup of physical activity. A tablespoon of laughter. A pinch of curiosity. And a dash of fun! That's the recipe for the YMCA's Healthy Kids Day, which provides all the ingredients for developing healthy, resilient kids. Mark your calendars for this free, fun event at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on March 26, 2023!
We are committed to nurturing the potential of every child and teen. The Y empowers young people to lead inspired, successful lives from cradle to career. Healthy Kids Day®, the Y's national initiative to improve families' health and well-being, is part of that commitment. One in three children in the U.S. is obese, and kids are often idler when summertime hits. Research shows that kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities.
Here in Cleveland, Healthy Kids Day brings more than 4,500 children and their parents together at Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse for games, fun activities and, for our Junior Cavs participants, some time on the same court the Cleveland Cavaliers compete on for their games! There will be kids' fitness classes, dancing, sports skills clinics, arts and crafts and other enrichment activities.
Many organizations that provide services of all kinds for children and families will be on-hand to join in the fun and offer educational opportunities for all.
