KELOWNA - The YMCA of Okanagan is pleased to announce that Interior Savings will be the title sponsor for the Y’s 10th annual Healthy Kids Day coming up on June 7. This free community event will take place outside the Kelowna Family Y in Rutland promoting healthy, active living for children and families.
“As a locally-based credit union, our success is closely tied to the health and vitality of the communities we serve,” said Kathy Conway, CEO of Interior Savings. “By investing in the development of healthy, active and confident kids, we are also investing in our future industry and community leaders. The YMCA does outstanding work in this area and we are pleased to partner with them on an event that teaches families how easy and fun healthy living can be.”
YMCA Healthy Kids Day promotes the benefits of a lifetime of healthy habits in a festival-like setting. With over 40 activity stations, heart pumping entertainment, nutritious snacks, games, prizes and more, children and their families can enjoy a fun day and learn some tips about leading healthier lives both inside and outside the walls of the Y.
“Each year, in over 1000 communities across North America, YMCA Healthy Kids Day connects thousands of people over a common goal—creating a healthier future for our kids,” says Sharon Peterson, YMCA of Okanagan CEO. “We want to inspire children to bring play back into their lives. This event places special emphasis on holistic health, giving children, youth and parents the resources to live healthy every day.”
The Y invites all families from the community to run, jump, skip or hop their way down to the Kelowna Family YMCA, 375 Hartman Rd., on June 7 from noon to 4 p.m.
