Each spring most YMCA's in Canada recognize and celebrate “Healthy Kids Day”. “Healthy Kids Day” is a national day dedicated to improving the health and well-being of kids. 

Now you know that the YMCA advocates for and supports the development of happy and healthy children year-round, but on "Healthy Kids Day"  we highlight and engage families around the issue with some special activities.

So, we hope you will join us on Sunday, May 27th for the Chatham-Kent YMCA’s 4th annual Family Fun Run/Walk to celebrate YMCA Canada's Healthy Kid Day. It's a great way to get Mom, Dad, the kids, cousins and friends off the couch and outside to enjoy a healthy activity together!

We are offering three (3) distances, a 5K and a 3K, and several affordable price points to fit your family budget. The first of our run/walk events starts at 9:00 am just outside our membership centre at 101 Courthouse Lane, off Grand Avenue West in Chatham. Then, stick around to cheer on the kids participating in our free 1K kids fun run which starts at 10:30 am.

For more information on the above, contact Rob Clarke at 519-360-9622, x110.
