Irvin Deutscher YMCA
Healthy kids, the 'Y' way
The YMCA's Healthy Kids Day was recently celebrated at the Irvin Deutscher facility in Pleasant Hill with a free community event to encourage kids to get moving and living healthier. Healthy Kids Day, the Y's national initiative to improve families' health and well-being, took place at 1,900 facilities to kick-start healthier behaviors throughout the summer, a critical out-of-school time for children's health. More than 150 kids, along with their parents, participated in active play and educational activities, such as pool games, family relay, yoga for kids and arts and crafts. Dr. Michael Harris, Pleasant Hill mayor and Irvin Deutscher Family YMCA board chairman, started off the event with a Family Fun Walk. For more about the Y, call 925-687-8900 or visit www.YMCA—CBA.org.
