The YMCA of the Triangle is making healthy living fun and more accessible with the 5210 Y Healthy Hero program each week at our After School programs. The 5210 program is based on Let’s Go!, a nationally recognized childhood obesity prevention program designed to increase healthy eating and active living.
Become a Y Healthy Hero with 5210
5210 provides healthy messaging through fun, engaging activities that impact children and families in a positive way as it encourages them to develop healthy habits. The Y will share 5210 healthy habits weekly at your child's After School site during assembly time, rides out, games and activities.
Each week, children will learn more about the program through educational materials and fun, engaging activities. They will also enjoy regular visits from the Healthy Hero himself!
