Healthy Kids Day took place at the YMCA all day Saturday, to help improve the health and well-being of kids. Family and friends gathered at the local gym for the free event. There were many different stations around the building that had active and educational opportunities.
Each table had a different community partner from the area teaching kids on how to brush their teeth, eat healthy and more. Event coordinators say this is a yearly event that they do to keep the county informed.
“I think its a great event for the community. It also reaches out and shows that we have a problem with obesity in Washington County, and we’re trying to get the word out and get information out,” DJ Stouffer said, the senior director of youth development.
The YMCA hosts different events year round.
