City was seen filled with enthusiasm during the free community event which was organized by the YMCA of Central Kentucky, to celebrate Healthy Kids Day in the region on Saturday.
The main focus of the event was to serve kids with better health instructions and make them learn their own well-being. The event was held at the University of Kentucky's Nutter Field House and the day got filled in with a lot of enthusiasm and fun that was seen in the participants participating in relay races, inflatables, hula hoops, soccer and an obstacle course.
YMCA officials not only taught kids the healthy habits but they also focused to inspire a lifetime love of physical activity in them through active play.
The YMCA of Marquette was filled in with the rush of kids and events to entertain them during Healthy Kids Day celebration. Authorities backing the event believe that this national push will help kids understand the need to be healthy and live healthy lives both mentally as well as physically.
Some other main attractions of the grand event were healthy snacks, which were fed to kids by the staff at the YMCA, and the proper hygiene education and games that they were facilitated with.
Explaining the importance of such events in a kid’s life, Coordinator Mr. Kelsey Roy said that "It's important to start at an early age to develop a habit and keeping the kids excited about it, it's harder to develop that habit when you get older. Just keeping the kids active throughout life will just keep them maintaining their healthier lifestyle”.
Best Buy and the U. S. Coast Guard were also among the list of organizations that were present during the event. It was indeed a lively effort to educate children!
