On Saturday, April 28, the South Brunswick Family YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day with a free community event for kids and families in South Brunswick. More than 1,900 Y’s across the country are taking part in the celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer – a critical out-of-school time for kids.
Healthy Kids Day, a national initiative of the Y to improve the health and well-being of kids, is filled with fun, active play and educational activities that will help parents improve their kids’ lifestyles for the long term. Research shows that without access to activities that stimulate the mind and body, kids are more prone to gain weight and fall behind academically over the summer months.
The South Brunswick Family YMCA’s event will take place at 329 Culver Road, Monmouth Junction, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and will feature many local vendors and family activities.
