Healthy Kids Day: Free activities for the whole family

YMCA's Healthy Kids Day is a signature event of the YMCA Activate America initiative, which is rallying YMCAs across the country to further help individuals and families who struggle to adopt and sustain a healthy lifestyle.

Each spring the Greater Cleveland opens its branches to the community for the event. Member and non-members alike are invited to drop by any of the branches to participate in fun, free events.

Check the individual Branch sections in the spring for dates and times.
