For city residents, $20 could buy five weeks worth of classes for a kid, and a chance to get that child good activity that will lead to a more healthy lifestyle.
It’s part of a new city initiative to combat childhood obesity.
“Healthy Kids On The Move,” in collaboration with the City of York’s ongoing Let’s Move York City initiative, will begin at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 9, at the YWCA York, located at 320 E. Market Street, according to a city news release.
The program offers activities, field trips and lessons, and encourages healthy behaviors in residents. Ron Johnson, a former NFL player and YWCA consultant, will offer living tips.
It’s meant for kids ages 8 to 11.
The fee is $20 for five weeks of classes, and anyone who wants more information should call or register at (717) 845-2631.
“Providing our youth with appealing opportunities to engage in healthy activities and behaviors in a positive learning environment is an important step in the right direction to keep the youth in our community healthy,” Mayor Kim Bracey said, “while also providing the resource as a cost friendly option to parents.”
