This event raises TONS of food for people in need while teaching children and youth teamwork and leadership skills. In addition, the young people learn about being part of the ‘bigger picture’ and giving back to community. The community gains by having a new generation of respectful and thoughtful people who care about where they live and helping others.

“The YMCA Kids in Motion program is a great way for kids to gain a sense of community involvement,” said Helene Weir, President & CEO of YMCA Calgary. “Part of what we do is to educate and provide personal development opportunities. That is what YMCA Kids in Motion is all about.”
