Healthy Kids Day:  Active Fun for Kids and Families

Healthy Kids Day 2021 took place on Saturday, August 28 at the Northfield Area Family YMCA.  This year’s theme was Recipe for a Healthy Kid. Healthy Kids Day 2021 featured a family/kids 5K/2K fun run, obstacle courses, archery and bounce houses, a birthday party, safety vehicles like the fire truck, ambulance and water patrol vehicle, live music, a scavenger hunt, and a variety of active and creative activities and interactive games. Local non-profit organizations and businesses sponsored games and drawings for prizes and giveaways, and provided information for kids and families.
