Healthy Kids Day Event on Saturday!

From our neighbors at the Embarcadero Y:

Tomorrow (April 16th, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) is the Y’s Healthy Kids Day promotion at Justin Hermann Plaza.

This is a day when across the country, YMCAs go out into the community to encourage healthy behaviors for kids. It will go from 10 am – 2pm. We’ll have free snacks and drinks from Whole Foods and lots of materials and healthy activities for families and kids designed to help kids and parents get more active.

Here’s a USA Today story about a survey commissioned by the Y on healthy behaviors for kids.

Two more upcoming events at the Embarcadero Y that you may be interested in:

On Wednesday, April 20th, the Embarcadero Y hosts a free Group Exercise class day when everyone is invited to try their classes all day. Members and non-members alike are welcome to join in the Y’s yoga, cycling, kickboxing, Capoeria, Pilates, Zumba and any other classes available on that day. Here’s a link to their schedule for that day. Go to get fit and meet some new friends!

Thursday, April 21 is the Embarcadero Y’s Dodgeball tournament from 6-9 pm. Cost to enter is $25 per person. They’re encouraging people to come individually or as a team. Gather a super-powered team—they’re going to raise $3000 for the 2011–2012 Annual Giving Campaign. It’s a fun excuse for corporate team building, or getting together with friends to help raise money.

Everyone is welcome to duke it out with teams of 10 people (or come individually and match up with a team). Bring your friends or co-workers as a fully formed team or join one of ours.
