Dorchester YMCA's Healthy Kids Day | April 26


On Saturday, April 26 the Dorchester YMCA will host a Healthy Kids Day event. This event will take place at the Dorchester YMCA located at 776 Washington Street from 10 am until Noon. This is a national initiative to improve the health and well being of kids. Summer is a time for kids to get up, get out, and grow, but for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain weight and fall behind academically due to lack of physical activity during the summer. This event is open to the entire community and is free for kids and families. Some of the activities taking place include, face painting, family friendly group exercise, bounce house, fitness checks, kids boxing, scavenger hunt, and open swim from 2 pm until 5 pm. For more information call 617-436-7750 or visit
