The YMCA at Virginia Tech is hosting Healthy Kids Day® once again for 2016! This is a fantastic (and free!) community event designed to inspire kids to stay physically and mentally active throughout the summertime.

The event will take place at Dietrick Field and Cassell Coliseum on April 30th, 2016 from 11 am to 4 pm. There will be tons of kid-friendly activities, games, inflatables, crafts, sports, healthy snacks, and more! During this event, we will be joined by many local organizations and student groups. So come on out and support the YMCA at VT!

***Rain or Shine Event***
In the case of poor weather, all outdoor activities will be relocated inside the Cassell Coliseum Concourse.

Please contact us if you are interested in...
• becoming a vendor and/or sponsor for our event
• volunteering during HKD® as an individual or as part of a student organization
