Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- On Saturday, April 27, the YMCA of Southern Nevada is celebrating Healthy Kids Day from 10 a.m. to noon with a free community event for kids and families.

Families can enjoy interactive games, wellness screenings, a vendor fair, demonstrations and more at all Y locations including: Heinrich YMCA, 4141 Meadows Lane; Durango Community Center YMCA, 3521 N. Durango Dr.; Centennial Hills Community Center YMCA, 6601 N. Buffalo Dr.; and SkyView YMCA, 3050 E. Centennial Pkwy. Activities vary by location.
To celebrate the day and help parents begin thinking early about what their kids need to grow and achieve all summer long, the Y will also waive its joining fee and include a free program for any family or individual who joins the Y during the April 27 event. This offer is valued at up to $150. No coupon is required.
The Y will also be giving demonstrations of CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health), a national childhood wellness program the Y is implementing to help combat childhood obesity. CATCH is being incorporated into all Y day camps and childhood programs.
