On Saturday, YMCA chapters from across the country celebrated one of the nonprofit’s biggest events of the year: Healthy Kids Day.
Kids of all ages came out to the Clarksburg City Park to learn how to make healthy lifestyle changes while having some fun in the sun.
Dozens of health vendors, including Highland Hospital and a local dentist, were also in attendance. The YMCA of Harrison County said it’s important for kids and their parents to get moving.
“"We actually had a karate demonstration, we have basketball, we're planting flowers. We really want to encourage families to become part of the Y and participate in our activities. They are healthy lifestyle choices, so we try to encourage the children to get outside and play, and get some exercise, as well ask your parents,” said Lynne Menendez of the YMCA of Harrison County.
The Clarksburg Fire Department also participated in Healthy Kids Day.
