Free jump rope at the Y

Want a free jump rope? The Eh? desk isn’t eligible, but it sure wishes it was.

The first 500 lucky kids are, though, at the Duluth Y Healthy Kids Day from noon to 4 p.m. April 20.

The free event offers pool paddle-boarding, rock-wall climbing, learning bike signals, petting animals from the Lake Superior Zoo, music by the Steel Drummers from the College of St. Scholastica and sports mascots Clifford and Champ. There will be healthy snacks and raffles throughout the day.

The event is being held for parents to get ideas on summer activities at the Y. Call the member service desk at (218) 722-4745, ext. 100, with questions.
