400 West Whittier st., Columbus

The YMCA of Central Ohio, in partnership with 10TV – WBNS and 10TV Commit To Be Fit  is holding a free community event to inspire more kids to keep their minds and bodies active all summer long. Healthy Kids Day®, the Y’s national initiative to improve families’ health and well-being, features a full day’s worth of fun and activities for the whole family, including: games, obstacle courses, sand volleyball, gaga, climbing wall, fitness classes, entertainment, arts and crafts and more to motivate and teach families how to develop healthy routines at home. 10TV talent will be at the event. Over 2,500 people are expected to be in attendance.

One in three U.S. children is obese, and when summertime hits, kids will be more idle. Research shows that without access to out-of-school physical and learning activities, kids fall behind academically and gain weight twice as fast during summer than the school year. Healthy Kids Day is an opportunity for the community to focus on what kids need to grow and achieve all summer long.
