World Health Day: Showing kids how to move is just as important as teaching them how to read and write!

The YMCAs of Québec - April 07 2016

The prevalence of diabetes in young people is growing. Physical inactivity is a significant cause of this.

Showing kids how to move is just as important as teaching them how to read and write!

Most of our programs, such as our daycarescamps and school perseverance programs for kids aged 0-12 and youth aged 12 and over, include a physical activity component.

By encouraging kids to love physical activity from an early age and to adopt lifelong healthy habits, we are also helping them succeed in school.

Happy World Health Day!
