April is Family Fun Month at the Y

This month we’re celebrating one of our specialties, family fun!  Mark your calendars for Healthy Kids Day, which will be April 28th, 10am-3pm in Burlington. We’re excited to announce a new event to kick off the festivities, Champ on Church, a 1/2 or 1 mile fun run on the Church Street Marketplace.  Kids age 4 – 12 are encouraged to join our favorite lake monster and our friends from RunVermont for this.  Please click here for more details on Healthy Kids Day and Champ on Church.

Also to celebrate family fun, if you join the Y with a family membership in April, we’ll waive the joining fee, and give you 5 free visits to our Member Child Care program.  In addition to other benefits of membership at the Y (such as access to our fitness centers, pools, and our group fitness and aquatic fitness classes), family members also enjoy Family Gym (offered 4 times a week; twice each in Burlington and Winooski), open swim and gym times, as well as member pricing for youth programs (like swim lessons, ballet class, bitty sports, and much more).  But perhaps one of the best benefits of family membership is access to the Myers Memorial Pool (our outdoor community pool in Winooski) all summer long!  There isn’t much better family time than a nice summer evening relaxing at the pool.  For more information on family membership, please give Member Services at call at 862-9622, or email Larry Edelson, Membership Director at ledelson@gbymca.org.

Healthy Family Home is a Y initiative that promotes incorporating healthy behaviors into your lives. The key elements it encourages are:
