YMCA Born to Move Program Launch Party
August 14, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Join the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati and Cincinnati Reds mascots on Thursday, August 14, 2014 to unveil an exciting new fitness program for children called Born to Move™. The free Born to Move™ party on Fountain Square will be held from noon until 1 p.m. Families are invited to participate in the program that utilizes energizing music, games, dance, magic, and the power of imagination to encourage kids to get active.
The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati is the first local fitness facility to offer the Born to Move™ program; classes will be available at several Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky YMCA branch facilities this fall, and in many YMCA after school programs. “This is an exciting program that will be available for children, from ages 2 to 16,” said YMCA of Greater Cincinnati Executive Director of Program and Leadership Development Cindy Tomaszewski. “The Y is committed to helping children develop habits that will foster a lifelong love of physical activity. These classes are designed to build self-esteem at every age, while helping children master new skills.”
Born to Move™ classes are designed to engage specific age groups, and involve a fun, motivating, and scientifically proven mix of age appropriate movement and music to help children develop positive physical habits.
