The word “fuel” has a lot of meanings here in Calgary. It’s the stuff that helps to drive our economy, and it evokes that can-do spirit for which Calgarians are known. It’s symbolic of the energy you
feel when you get your heart rate up, challenging yourself through physical activity.
For us here at YMCA Calgary, fuel is also a word that brings to mind the passion of our staff, volunteers and members to take a 114-year-old organization boldly into the future. In these pages, you’ll learn more about the broad impact YMCA Calgary programs and services have in the Calgary community.
This is one of the most exciting times to be part of the YMCA. Through a true partnership with the City of Calgary, we will soon be operating three new Centres of Community, adding to the work we are already doing in our five established branches and in over 60 other sites across town.
This magazine is devoted to some of the stories of ways we are fulfilling our vision of communities that are vibrant and healthy because youth and adults belong, grow, thrive and lead. From our award-winning child care curriculum Playing to Learn, to our jewel in the Rockies, Camp Chief Hector YMCA, to South Health Campus YMCA, the only Y in a hospital facility in the country, we are embracing
a future where people of all ages move more, connect more and are energized by the people around them.
We’re YMCA Calgary, and this is our fuel.
