HARRISBURG – Rep. Valerie Gaydos (R-Allegheny) is teaming up with Sen. Devlin Robinson (R-Allegheny) and the Sewickley Valley YMCA to host National Healthy Kids Day on Saturday, April 29, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the Sewickley Valley YMCA.

National Healthy Kids Day is the YMCA’s national initiative to improve the health and well-being of children and families. For more than 30 years, YMCAs and their communities have hosted free community events aimed to inspire kids and families to keep their minds and bodies active throughout the summer months and beyond.

“All activities are designed to inspire kids to get active while simultaneously teaching families how to develop routines that support mental and physical health at home,” said Gaydos. “A child’s health is the foundation of all growth and development. Other important parts include their learning and thinking development, social and emotional growth, and mental health.”

Project D.U.M.P. (Disposal of Unused/Expired Medications Properly) will be attending the event. As a response to the opioid epidemic afflicting families across the nation, specifically in western Pennsylvania, Project D.U.M.P. asks residents to gather expired unused meds at home and dispose of them properly.

The Sewickley Valley YMCA is located at 625 Blackburn Drive, Sewickley.
