Back in the day, you just threw on your coat, jumped on your bike sans helmet, and road down the sidewalk. We've come a long way from there, and on April 30 local YMCA's are participating in a big way for Healthy Kids Day®.

On Saturday April 30, YMCAs all across the country will be celebrating our youth with Healthy Kids Day®. It's the Y's nationwide effort to improve the health and well-being of kids. To find out what your local YMCA is doing tomorrow go to ymca.net and put in your zip code.

In our immediate area, the Regional YMCA Greenknoll location, 2 Huckleberry Hill Road in Brookfield is celebrating Healthy Kids Day® in a big way.

Tomorrow, April 30 from 1 p - 3 p at the Ys Greenknoll location, 2 Huckleberry Hill Road, they have tons of activities planned. The first 100 kids get FREE tee shirts to start with. Parents, have your children bring their bikes and helmets for free safety checks too. Also tomorrow, six helmets and two new bikes will be raffled off. More info about all the activities can be found on the Regional YMCA of Western CT's Facebook page.

Have fun on April 30, and stay healthy every day with all of the programs of the YMCA.
