Business Spotlight: La Jolla YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day set for April 25


La Jolla YMCA will host a free community event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 8355 Cliffridge Ave., to inspire kids to keep their minds and bodies active. Healthy Kids Day, the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and wellbeing of families, will feature activities such as healthful edible art and recipes, games, arts and crafts as well as fun, active play like kayaking in the pool, a rock climbing wall and more!

If you visit the Y in April, you and your family will get a free two-week pass to improve your health and wellness!

YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day aims to get more kids moving and learning, so they can keep up the habit all summer long. When kids are out of school, they can face hurdles — or gaps — that prevent them from reaching their full potential. Each year, the Y helps more than 9 million youth nationwide “hop the gap” and achieve more, providing a safe to place to learn, stay healthy and build friendships.

“The Y is so much more than sports, swimming, gymnastics and a place for kids to hang out. We support families in their efforts to instill healthy habits at home,” said Sue Ball, regional vice president of YMCA of San Diego County. “We know that it feels like a challenge sometimes, but the Y can help!”
