Spin for YMCA Strong Kids Update

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of our supporters and donors who helped us at our YMCA Strong Kids kick-off event. We were able to raise a total of $83,185.18 from Spin for Strong Kids!

March 4 marked the 2013 YMCA Strong Kids Kick-Off. YMCA Calgary hosted Spin for YMCA Strong Kids where every YMCA in Calgary had spin bikes in the lobby. The participants took turns spinning for 30 minutes each–raising money for our charity, YMCA Strong Kids. At Camp Chief Hector, the staff got on road bikes to do a camp version of Spin for Strong Kids.

It was a very exciting day with lots of people anxious to spin for a great cause! The event saw staff, volunteers, program participants, members, Y Survive teams, a former Team Canada Olympic Woman’s hockey player, NHL alumni, Calgary Stampeders players, YMCA Board of Directors, a media spin challenge, and many kids, youth and families in the community.  We would like to thank everyone for all their support and enthusiasm!

In 2013, our goal of $1.5 Million will help more than 20,000 kids and youth in our community. If you are interested in helping us reach our goal and help keep children and youth happy and healthy,  please contact Lana Dionne in the Financial Development at 403-781-1663.
