On April 28, the Fort Bend Family YMCA is celebrating Healthy Kids Day® with a free community event for kids and families in the Missouri City / Sugar Land communities. Each YMCA across the greater Houston area is taking part in the celebration, meant to kick start physical activity and learning throughout the summer – a critical out-of-school time for kids.
The Fort Bend Family YMCA’s event will take place at the Y located at 4433 Cartwright Rd., Missouri City, TX 77459 (just one block north of Hwy 6 and one block east of Dulles Ave.) from 10:00am – 1:00pm.
Healthy Kids Day, a national initiative of the Y to improve the health and well-being of kids, is filled with fun, active play and educational activities that will help parents improve their kids’ lifestyles for the long term. Research shows that without access to activities that stimulate the mind and body, kids are more prone to gain weight and fall behind academically over the summer months. They will feature children’s activities such as bounce houses, games and face painting as well as Chef Tim, The Healthy Cooking Chef; Chic-Fil-A; Sweet Tomatoes; HEB Sienna Market; Sylvan Learning Center; Kelsey-Seybold and many other family friendly organizations. KRBE radio will also be here broadcasting live during the event. This event encourages families to Put Play in your Day!
