Thanks Calgary!

We are pleased to announce that the World Alliance of YMCAs
World Challenge was a great success. The goal of this event was to raise awareness of the YMCAs international involvement and encourage YMCAs around the world to plan an event to engage young people and connect with their communities.BBall girl

YMCA Canada’s event involved the goal of beating a Guinness World Book record for the most people shooting basketballs in one day.  Between the hours of 10am and 1pm, four Calgary association branches participated in this initiative and encouraged members and non-members to shoot a hoop.

All together we had 980 people shoot hoops in our lobbies. Thank you to everyone involved, your participation helped make this a successful event.  We would also like to extend a very big thank you to the Calgary Public Library for acting as our 3rd party and verifying our numbers for Guinness World Book of Records purposes.
