MyY events like this annual favorite support the members of the community that need it most. Thanks to sponsors and pledges, more children will have the opportunity to go to summer camp this year, more seniors will have the opportunity to socialize with their peers, and more families will have access to health and fitness programs in their communities.
The Strong Kids Campaign reaches out to those who need it most in different ways.
A YMCA employee named Dave was working his usual duties at the membership desk when he noticed that a member was quietly cancelling and then reactivating a single membership every month. The member was an aunt of two children; she would take turns adding the kids onto her membership because she couldn’t afford to pay for both at the same time. Once Dave realized her struggles, the YMCA was able to provide memberships for both children through the subsidized membership program. The children and their aunt were ecstatic to find out the great news and to know that the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign was there for them. The YMCA Strong Kids program needs your help to help others like this family.
So dust off your running shoes and lace up! We hope to see you there!
The YMCA Strong Kids Campaign needs your help to continue helping those who need it most. Events like the YMCA Huronia Half Marathon are great ways for you to support this valuable initiative in your community.
