Hy-Vee Preaches Health, Donates To YMCA


Kids are doing yoga today at a grocery store? It's all part of Hyvee and the YMCA's efforts to teach kids healthy habits.

Yoga is just one of many things the two groups are doing to reach out to youth in the community.
Hyvee has also donated $20,000 today to help more QC children learn about healthy diets and exercise.

"Teach them how to eat healthy what fruits and vegetables are those mean things that they gotta have in their life and to work out and really to start good habits at a young age that carry over through their life," CEO of Scott Co. Family YMCA Brad Martell said.

YMCA officials say they can use the money to update their branches and expand the programs, like the kids triathlon.
