Learn about YMCA Strong Kids
Stop by Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot to learn how YMCA Strong Kids supports your community.
Can’t make any of these events?
You can still support kids and youth by donating online.
In a significant boost to its Power of Potential Campaign, YMCA Calgary has received a $1-million donation from Melcor Developments Ltd. celebrating the strong relationship between the YMCA, Melcor and its founding family, the Meltons. In recognition of this substantial and meaningful gift, YMCA Calgary has renamed its Crowfoot YMCA facility in northwest Calgary as the Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot. A YMCA member and champion for decades, Andy Melton says the fit between Melcor and the YMCA is a perfect match. “We are builders of communities at Melcor. But, like our company, the YMCA isn’t only about bricks and mortar; it’s about providing value to the community.”
“The Y humbly and quietly goes about its business, making a real impact,” Melton says. “We hope this investment will inspire others to consider YMCA Calgary as worthy of support and investment as it raises $30-million to make a healthier more connected Calgary.”
YMCA Calgary President and CEO Helene Weir says Andy Melton’s – and Melcor’s – commitment demonstrates a match in values. “The words honesty, caring, responsibility and respect hang prominently inside the Melcor YMCA at Crowfoot,” she says. “Andy and the team at Melcor embody those values and put them to good use creating communities and investing in the success of kids, families and everyone who lives and works within them.”
“Through this contribution to the YMCA campaign, Melcor has shown tremendous leadership.” says Evan Hazell, Co-Chair of the Power of Potential Campaign cabinet. “This support will go a long way in engaging more people of all ages and abilities in reaching their full potential – the anchor purpose of our campaign.”
Brian Baker, President and CEO of Melcor Developments adds, “we are proud to have the Melcor name associated with an organization focused so selflessly on the health of children, youth and adults, building leaders and creating great community opportunities for wellness. ”

YMAP in the News
Some of our amazing YMAP participants were recently featured on Global News!
YMAP: YMCA Achievement Program
YMAP works with over 320 high school youth and young adults each year who are new to Canada. These youth are refugees, immigrants, international students and second generation Canadians from over 50 different countries.
We engage these youth through weekly after-school sessions and special events. YMAP youth have the opportunity to develop in all areas essential to a positive and healthy integration into Canada while maintaining and celebrating their culture of origin. They also are engaged in community work through volunteer and fundraising projects throughout the city.

Good Things Happen at the YMCA
In these challenging times there are some happy moments. The Housekeeping team at the Gray Family Eau Claire YMCA recently started an initiative to centrally store and collect empty bottles for the YMCA Strong Kids campaign.
The value of the first cheque to Strong Kids was $340.00 and the 2nd pick-up is scheduled before the end of the year. That’s enough to send a child to camp and have the experience of a lifetime, or teach the essential life skill of swimming to a family new to our city!
We’re so proud of our staff for taking on this wonderful initiative!
The following team members participated in the first collection:
Paramjit Darrar, Nirpal Shergill, Kamla Sharma, Monohar Nirwal, Genina Yepes, Jasvir Dhanoa, Roop Sidhu, Major Gill, Gurmit Singh and Sukhdev Bains.
