YMCA of the East Bay’s Healthy Kids Day 2015 Attracts Record Number of Volunteers in Oakland & Throughout the East Bay

The YMCA of the East Bay today announced that their April 25/26 Healthy Kids Day festivities, a series of community events for kids and families, served over 1,200 participants with a record number of volunteers this year.

“Thanks to the efforts of our many volunteers, guided by our dedicated and experienced Y staff, we were able to put on remarkable events that furthered our health and wellness education efforts,” said Robert Wilkins, President & CEO of the YMCA of the East Bay.

Guided by more than 100 volunteers and Y staff, Y members and community participants celebrated Healthy Kids Day by participating in family fitness classes, a 5k run in Oakland, jumpers, informational health fairs and more throughout the East Bay.  In addition to the April 25 festivities, a special KaBOOM!-sponsored playground debut took place on April 26 at the Hilltop YMCA in Richmond.

As a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y holds Healthy Kids Day (a national Y initiative) to teach healthy habits and inspire a lifetime love of being healthy from head to toe.

Commenting on the support of Y volunteers, Wilkins continued by saying “We cannot do what we do without the help of our supporting community partners.  Their assistance helps us to further our reach to benefit our communities together.”  The YMCA of the East Bay continues to encourage the public to volunteer a few hours of time to any worthy organization that is doing good in their community.

The YMCA of the East Bay, a local expert in the pillars of healthy living, continually encourages the foundations of health by providing kids the education and outlets to engage in active play, get together and building strong relationships, enjoy the outdoors and make healthy eating choices.
