We are slowly reopening after being closed for four months. In July we were able to offer summer childcare for working families, lap swim, water exercise classes, outdoor exercise classes, sports and gymnastics clinics and, as of today, our fitness center is back open!
The Virtual Benefit will raise funds for our Y Cares Financial Assistance program to ensure that the Y remains accessible to everyone. Y Cares provides camp scholarships and membership, childcare and program subsidies to hundreds of families and individuals every year. In 2019 alone, the Y awarded over $435,000 in financial assistance to those who needed a helping hand.
Y Cares also funds free community programs like LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a small group physical activity program for cancer survivors, and Safety Around Water, a drowning prevention initiative for young children.
