Interior Savings Credit Union will be the title sponsor for the 6th annual YMCA Healthy Kids Day to be held on Sunday, June 5.
“As a locally-based credit union, our success is closely tied to the health and vitality of the communities we serve,” said Gene Creelman, vice-president of marketing and communications at 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 will be a fun, free family event that celebrates healthy living with heart pumping entertainment, sports, games and swimming, nutritional BBQ and snacks, and educational resources.
There will be a huge array of fun activities provided by the Y and over 40 partner organizations and businesses, along with resources for parents to help them in raising healthy, active kids.
YMCA Healthy Kids Day is designed to get kids and families excited about staying active, safe, connected and healthy,” said Sharon Peterson, chief executive officer of the YMCA-YWCA of the Central Okanagan.
“Increasing physical activity is just one part of being healthier. At YMCA Healthy Kids Day, families can learn together about healthy habits in a playful and interactive festival setting that includes nutrition, environmental health, social supports, career exploration, personal health and safety.”
YMCA Healthy Kids Day is a nationally recognized event of YMCA Canada and YMCA USA and is held each year at over 1,700 Y across North America.
In Kelowna, the event next Sunday will take place from noon to 4 p.m., both outside and inside the Kelowna Family Y facility, 375 Hartman Rd. in Rutland.
