The Shelby YMCA is now launching a campaign to help kids make healthier choices to combat America's growing obesity epidemic. A day dedicated to the campaign (and instrumental in launching it), Healthy Kids Day, was held on Saturday by YMCAs throughout the nation. "We're getting them to eat better, showing them how to take care of themselves," says Eric Finn, Shelby YMCA's Program Membership Director.

"Today, we've got some games, the fire department and the police department are doing some physical training exercises outside, we've got a couple exercises in the pool, some recess-type games like foursquare and kickball, tons of fun going on today." Finn says that the program doesn't necessarily want to draw in new members - but to serve the community as a whole. "The biggest thing is, The Y - being a community center like we are - try to reach out to the community and and the members of the community and just try to better educate them on what they need to do better with themselves," explained Finn. "Maybe they might (already) be doing something, but they pick up a couple things here, they get a little healthier, and we feel better about it."

Several community leaders set up tables with presentations to offer their services to the community as well, such as CACY (Community Action for Capable Youth) and Playtime Dental.
