(Madison, NJ) May 1, 2015 –The Madison Area YMCA celebrated YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, on Saturday, April 25.
Children and their families spent quality family time enjoying the outdoors and participating in lots of fun events. Activities included races, a performance by a hip hop troop, Zumba dance party, bounce house, arts and crafts, GAGA (dodgeball), an obstacle course, raffles, giveaways and face painting. The Morris County Police Department brought McGruff the Crime Dog.
The YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day, celebrated by more than 1,500 Y’s across the country, gets kids moving and learning, so they can keep up the habit all summer long – a critical out-of-school time for kids’ health. Helping bring families and kids together to have fun, be active, learn more and create lasting, healthy habits for the entire family, Healthy Kids Day is just one more way the Y works to strengthen community.
