Activate America

It's time to Activate America! From the YMCA website:

"Activate America® is the YMCA's bold approach to directly address our nation's growing health crisis. Our mission compels us to transform the way we work, both internally and externally, to support all kids, adults, families and communities in their pursuit of well-being in spirit, mind and body. In addressing America's unprecedented health crisis, the YMCA is best equipped to influence change in individuals and in our communities to proactively address this health crisis, which is central to the achievement of our mission."

Today is the 18th annual YMCA Healthy Kids Day. Over 1,700 YMCAs nationwide are hosting events either today or coming up soon. Check to see if there's an event in your neck of the woods.

Get up and get out today. Make sure you eat well, and remember to hydrate as you exercise. Take a hike with your friends, ride a bike or walk instead of driving, play a pick-up game of some kind - get moving!
