Partners for Play! Let’s Put Play in Your Day!
MobYle is a fun and free organized physical activity program to be implemented in parks throughout each ward in Timmins. Through fun and challenging games and activities run by our MobYle staff, children visiting selected parks will have a chance to engage in moderate to vigorous physical activity in a safe and structured way.
YMCA MobYle is a program made possible by the cooperative effort of Timmins Family YMCA, Ontario Ministry of Health Promotion – Healthy Community Fund, Timmins Honda, the City of Timmins and the Porcupine Health Unit.
During the months of July and August, our MobYle team will be visiting selected parks in Timmins (see our schedule for locations). We can also be found at special events throughout the city including the Wednesday night concert series, Urban Park Days and Relay for Life, just to name a few!
It is our belief that parks are a hub for physical activity and healthy social interaction but are often not utilized to their full potential. Children are becoming increasingly less physically active and need to become more motivated to live a physically active lifestyle. Through the MobYle program we hope to provide an active living solution to the children in our community and raise awareness about the benefits of living a healthy, active lifestyle. By taking part in the YMCA’s MobYle program, children can learn to live healthy through active living.
