YMCA hosting Healthy Kids Day

DOWNEY - The Downey YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day on April 27, a free community event that encourages kids in Downey to get moving and learning."At the Downey Family YMCA, we know parents struggle to keep their kids physically and intellectually active every day. We want to help ensure fewer kids are at risk of childhood obesity and more kids excel in school," said Anne Ullstrom, executive director of the Downey Y. "YMCA's Healthy Kids Day will get kids moving and learning while also helping families get a jump on creating a healthier summer, and ultimately a healthier future." Families are invited to the Y between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for fun, active play and educational activities, including a bike ride by the Downey Bicycle Coalition. For more details, contact the YMCA at (562) 862-4201 or visit ymcala.org/dow.
