Healthy Kids Day

HEALTHY KIDS DAY: A national intiative to improve the health & well-being of kids

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out, and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. The Y is holding a FREE community event to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active all summer long. Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, features activities to motivate and teach families how to develop healthy routines at home.

The next Healthy Kids Day will be held in April 2020. Join 1.2 million participants nationwide and kick off summer with some healthy family fun! Healthy Kids Day encourages kids and families to stay active, connected and healthy.

  • Bounce houses
  • Face painting
  • Arts & crafts
  • Free family fitness demos
  • STEM activities
  • Fun prizes

Youth Triathlon

Jim & Heather Gills YMCA

Each year we host a free youth triathlon where children ages 4 - 14 can run, bike and swim to a new level of achievement! Participants can do the full triathlon, or even just one portion. Have fun and get active, with each child receiving a medal & T-shirt.

The more support, guidance, and opportunities we give kids, the further they will reach. The further they reach, the more they can achieve - and together, we build A Better Us. That's why we provide kids a healthy, caring environment of fun, learning and belonging to help them reach their fullest potential.
