Healthy Kids Day


Saturday, April 29, 2017


Nothing charges up kids like summer—and Healthy Kids Day® is the Y's official start to the best summer ever! So make sure your kids get the most they can out of this summer...in spirit, mind and body. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the fun. Let's charge into the best summer ever together!

This event is free and open to the public! The Y and Delta Air Lines believe playing and learning shouldn't take a break when school does. We believe that families everywhere can lead enriching lives all year long.

Let's partner up to fuel your child's future through healthy meals, fun activities and new friends.

The fun doesn’t stop there, every half an hour a winner will be picked for a giveaway on site. Every child and adult will receive a gift bag with goodies.

The Power Health Tour component will feature free screenings and testing inclusive of National Kidney Foundation’s Keep Healthy Program which will offer a full service clinic approach on site for early evaluation of kidney disease in addition to Glucose, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Prostrate, STDs screenings and more!
