April 30th is Healthy Kids Day!

Join us in celebrating YMCA Healthy Kids Day, a national day dedicated to improving the health and well-being of kids.  A FREE event for everyone in the community,  all six of our YMCA locations will be open to the public with fun and healthy activities for the entire family.

Year-round the YMCA advocates for and supports the development of happy and healthy children, but we highlight and engage families around the issue on this day.


FREE Fun for Everyone

Enjoy a day at the YMCA!  Swim, climb, shoot hoops or try out one of our organized activities like our LocalMOTION Obstacle Course – a fun way to get active and to celebrate Canada at the same time (learn more below)!  Or join us at our South Health Campus location where we will be celebrating the opening of our new Outdoor Sport Court. You’ll get a chance to try out the Sport Court and participate in a skill challenge.  Each YMCA location will offer organized activities from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Do you want to get active before the 30th? Read about YMCA’s LocalMOTION Active Challenge below.


What is LocalMOTION?

YMCA Canada is celebrating Canada’s 150 through its LocalMOTION program.  The program includes an online active challenge to help you learn more about Canada’s railroad history and how the YMCA was involved. Complete one or all of the challenges (and share!) for a chance to win monthly prizes and a grand prize of VIA Rail’s “The Canadian” trip for four. 

Each challenge you complete counts for an entry. Contest runs until July 31, 2017!
