WASHINGTON, April 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Saturday, April 21, 2018, the Y will be hosting the 27th Annual YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day.  The event is free and open to the public.

Healthy Kids Day is the YMCA of Metropolitan Washington’s largest national initiative, bringing children and families together and providing the education, activities and experiences that teach good health and foster connection through fitness, sports, fun and healthy habits.  As a result, youth and families achieve greater health and well-being for the spirit, mind and body.

In addition to community service initiatives, the day will include nutrition education, including how to make healthy snacks, arts & crafts, swimming demonstrations, face painting, relay games, and more.

Another goal is to motivate and teach families how to develop healthy and fun routines at home, particularly during those summer months.  Each participating Y branch and service center presents a day full of unique activities that promote active minds and healthy bodies,” said Angie Reese-Hawkins, President & CEO of YMCA Metropolitan Washington.

As a nonprofit organization, community service projects will be at the heart of this year’s Healthy Kids Day across the Washington metropolitan area.
