We believe summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But not all kids are exposed to activities that stimulate their mind and body once school is out. So we created Healthy Kids Day.

This nationwide celebration is our way to get more kids moving and learning, so they can keep up the habit all summer long. It’s part of our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids. And we would love for you to be a part of it. Check the Healthy Kids Day Branch Schedules for more details.
