Mayor Kasim Reed and the Atlanta metropolitan YMCA were apart of launching a new youth initiative by the U.S. Interior Department to get kids more active outside. The Event is launching nationwide. The city of Atlanta was among the first selected to participate. The official kick-off was last Saturday.
The next step in the campaign is a community wide summit to be hosted by the YMCA of Metropolitan Atlanta to discuss new strategies and partnerships to help implement this program. The Program is a part of President Obama’s “Every Kid in the Park” Initiative.
The Wade Walker Park Family YMCA in Stone Mountain will host a Healthy Kid's Day this month on the 25th at 11am. Check out the info below for more details and follow @BOLDJournal on twitter and subscribe to our newsletter for the latest updates.
