MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It!) childhood obesity intervention program for children, ages 7-13, and their parents starts on March 31.
The YMCA of Austin is the first YMCA in the country to partner with MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition, Do It!) in offering a childhood obesity intervention program for children and their parents. Spring sessions of MEND will begin again on Saturday March 31 at eight locations.
The program is offered free of charge thanks to generous grants from St. David's Foundation and the RGK Foundation. Each program lasts 10 weeks and meets twice per week, typically a weekday evening and Saturday morning. Parents must attend with their child.
