MARCO ISLAND — Kids weren’t the only participants in Saturday’s Greater Marco Family YMCA Healthy Kids Day fun. Parents also enjoyed the many activities throughout the day, especially the balloon toss, tug of war and a refreshing dip in the pool.
Other activities included seed planting, a bounce house, 50 and 100 yard dash and what seemed to be the favorite activity, design and consumption of your own fruit kabob.
“I want to grow up to be a professional basketball player,” said 6 year old Ethan Belcher, as he practiced his jump shot in the Airnasium. Ethan’s favorite thing to do at the YMCA is “Sports, it’s a fun exercise”.
Musical entertainment as well as activity announcements was provided by DJ Steve. Steve even participated in a line dance, accompanied by a few guests, as well as, YMCA’s CEO, Cindy Love.
The YMCA Healthy Kids Day is a free, fun filled day of activities designed to promote healthy kids and families in spirit, mind and body.
The YMCA is located at 101 Sand Hill Street on Marco Island. For information on the many upcoming events the YMCA has to offer, go to marcoislandymca.org or call (239) 394-3144.
