YMCA Strong Kids Thank You

Remember how everywhere you looked this summer you saw #yycstrong? Well it’s true and Calgary is still strong. YMCA Calgary reached our 2013 YMCA Strong Kids Campaign goal – $1.5 million in financial support for Calgary’s kids, teens, and families to participate in YMCA programs and activities.

One of the reasons Calgary is strong is donors like you. We are sincerely thankful for all of our donors. Without you, YMCA Strong Kids would not be able to help Joey learn to swim, help Katie attend day camp, and help Khalil practice his English language skills. Without you, YMCA Strong Kids would not be able to provide daycare to take care of Abe while his mom goes to work. We helped over 22,000 kids, thanks to you.

YMCA Strong Kids enriches the lives of thousands of children, youth and families each year in Calgary. It allows kids and youth to participate in healthy activities like basketball, badminton and floor hockey, volleyball, swimming and yoga. It provides the opportunity for kids and youth to learn leadership and job skills and how to start habits of healthy living. It provides healthy snacks and free homework help for kids in an after-school program.

All of the money raised for YMCA Strong Kids goes directly to the families. One in four of Calgary’s children is economically disadvantaged. YMCA Strong Kids helps fill the gap thanks to your generosity.

Thank you for making Calgary strong!
