TODAY is the 2013 YMCA Strong Kids Kick-Off!

2013 YMCA Strong Kids Kick-Off event is happening TODAY at all YMCA branches in Calgary!

Please join us as we celebrate the children and youth in our community! The 2013 YMCA Strong Kids goal is to raise $1.5 million to benefit 20,000 local youth and children. Raising donations for YMCA Strong Kids means that children and youth have positive experiences, make healthy choices, feel connected with others and learn the skills required to become leaders.

Want to get involved? YMCA Spin for Strong Kids is a great way to get active while helping out a great cause!

It’s not too late to participate in Spin for Strong Kids! Every YMCA in Calgary will have spin bikes in the lobby today—all of our fantastic staff, volunteers, participants and members who want to participate will be taking turns spinning for 30 minutes each–raising money for our charity, YMCA Strong Kids. Visit Member Services to see how you can participate!

One in four kids coming to YMCA needs financial assistance. 100% of all donations raised by YMCA Strong Kids goes directly to children and youth. Administrative costs are covered from YMCA’s operating budget; not from donations received.
