Healthy Fit Club!
The Bloomsburg Area YMCA wants to help kids grow up strong, confident, and healthy!
Why It Matters
Childhood obesity affects over 17% of young people, and can lead to a variety of health concerns including high blood pressure and cholesterol, breathing and joint problems, and even cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. These risks will only become more severe into adulthood. (Source: Center for Disease Control)
The Bloomsburg Area YMCA is dedicated to engaging kids in an active lifestyle that will keep them happy and healthy for years to come!
