“The past two years have been difficult for everyone, and children especially are feeling the effects of social isolation.  Through Healthy Kids Day, our Y is hoping to connect families in our community to activities, events and programs available to assist all,” stated Krystal R. Canady, CEO, The Gateway Family YMCA.

Healthy Kids Day is the Y’s largest single-day event promoting the health and well-being of kids and families.  Healthy Kids Day gives Ys an opportunity to connect members and families in their community with important resources on healthy eating, physical activity and academic enrichment.  Healthy Kids Day is also the unofficial kickoff for Y Summer Programming and Summer Camp.

“We believe in the potential of all children, and we strive to help kids find that potential within themselves. When a child is healthy, happy and supported, they can make great things happen,” stated Melynda A. Mileski, EVP, Chief Operating Officer.

The Gateway Family YMCA is a leading 501(c)(3) non-profit, health and community service organization committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other.  Working locally, the Y focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities.  By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, the Y ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive.
