Healthy Kids Day

Free event every spring

Healthy Kids Day
Friday, May 19, 2023

FREE Community Event

Summer is the 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 in studies. Each spring, the Y celebrates Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.


  • Inflatables
  • Games
  • Music
  • Free popcorn and fruit
  • MultSport simulator open

The Marshalltown YMCA-YWCA will host the annual Healthy Kids Day event from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on May 19. 

The event is free and open to the public. It will include inflatables, games, sports, light refreshments and lots of fun for children. No pre-registration is necessary.

Many of the activities will be outside at 108 Washington Street, but the gym will also be open and the multisport simulator will be free to use as well.

“We are excited to host this event, which should have various fun activities for kids and a way to get them moving and active,” said Andrew Potter, marketing and communications director for the Y.

In the case of inclement weather, all activities will be indoors.
