about the ymca strong kids campaign
YMCA Strong Kids is an annual fundraising campaign focused on raising much needed resources to support proven YMCA programs that give kids the opportunities they need to reach their full potential: to live healthier, happier lives today, and grow into productive adults in the future.
Supporting the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign directly helps children, teens and young adults in your community. Together, we can build a healthy community.
Last year, through the generosity of over 58,000 donors, $11.4M was raised through the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign across the nation. Your generosity along with funds raised through other sources supported the participation of over a quarter of a million people living in Canada, primarily children, teens and young adults.
Your generous donation will help the YMCA, to ensure people of all ages are healthier and more productive regardless of their background or financial situation.
