MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The YMCA of Greater Montgomery is hosting its Healthy Kids Day on Saturday. Healthy Kids Day is the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and wellness of kids and their families.

YMCA officials say when a child is healthy, happy, motivated and excited, something amazing is inevitably going to result. They believe as that child grows and fulfills their true potential, they will truly make the world a better place for everyone.

To continue its commitment to teach healthy habits for kids and families, encourage physical and mental play, and inspire a lifetime love of exercise, the YMCA of Greater Montgomery is excited to host events designed especially for children.

The YMCA of Greater Montgomery officials says the facility is so much more than the host of youth sports, after school childcare, and swimming. It supports families and their efforts to teach life long healthy habits and keep kids active and learning. It’s part of the Y’s promise to strengthen communities.

Healthy Kids Day will be held on April 22 from 10 am until Noon at:

Bell Road YMCA: Inflatables, Kids Group Exercise classes, healthy snacks

Goodtimes YMCA: The Brown Bag Bus with healthy snacks, free take-home tomato plants from Eat South
