Tong Louie Family YMCA will host its 2015 Healthy Kids Day on Sunday, June 7.

The free healthy-living event aims to encourage families and to embrace healthy habits and make them a lifelong practice.

New this year is the YMCA Strong Kids Megathon, a fundraiser to provide financial assistance to children and families who otherwise would not be able to participate in physical activity programs. The Megathon challenges participants to raise pledges and take on a fitness challenge – from spin to yoga. There is a $25 registration fee, however, that is waived with pledges of $150 or more. Register online at www.vanymcamegathon.ca

Healthy Kids Day runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Tong Louie YMCA is located at 14988 57 Ave.
