Healthy Kids Day | Saturday, April 21, 2018

9:00 am - 12:00 noon at TD Bank Ballpark, Home of the Somerset Patriots

On Saturday, April 21, Somerset County YMCA and Hunterdon County YMCA will celebrate Healthy Kids Day, the Y’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being for kids and families.

Saturday, April 21, 2018
9:00am - 12:00pm
TD Bank Ballpark
860 East Main Street, Bridgewater
FREE and open to the public!

At the Y, we believe that kids can achieve amazing things when they are properly supported. The theme of our Healthy Kids Day is ‘Swing for the Fences’ because at the Y, that’s just what we encourage kids to do—to seek to achieve their full potential.

Healthy Kids Day is a great way to get kids excited about healthy activities they can take home and do together as a family.

This fun-filled morning will feature activities such as baseball-themed games, recipe ideas, arts and crafts, obstacle course, track and field, giveaways, safety information, STEM experiments, performances and opportunities to meet Somerset Patriot players and mascots.

Join us at the ballpark!
