Bristol Township’s YMCA is offering free memberships to seventh graders in the area as a way to encourage healthy lifestyle choices. YMCA chapters across the country are offering the one-year membership to help kids at the crucial age choose to live active lives.


    The Bucks County Courier Times reports seventh graders in the area have been taking advantage of the free, single-person membership, which usually isn’t offered to children 12 and under.

    Feed the Feed: Do you think the year-long free membership will motivate kids to pursue a healthy lifestyle after the membership expires?
