Get active with the Y

YMCA Kelowna is gearing up for Healthy Kids Day at the end of the month.

This year on April 29 Healthy Kids Day is being celebrated in over 1,700 communities across North America with activities devoted to the health and well being of children and youth.

YMCA Healthy Kids Day is a fun, festival-like event intended to bring back play in kids’ lives and spark kid’s interests in different activities.

The event features over 40 activity stations, heart-pumping entertainment, nutritious snacks, games, and prizes.

Children and their parents get the opportunity to get outside and play while taking away tips to help them lead healthier lives.

According to recent studies children today lead a more sedentary lifestyle, in fact, 1 in three Canadian children are overweight.

Healthy Kids Day tackles these issues head-on and will connect families to resources offered both at the Y and through external community partners, and renew kids’ interest in outdoor, active play.  

In Kelowna, the YMCA Okanagan started this event in 2005, with nearly 1000 people in attendance and a few activities; the event is now in its 13th year and it now attracts over 5000 attendees.
