THE STORY:

Friends!  I've decided to take the plunge and run a full marathon in January (specifically, the Walt Disney World Marathon!)  And I want to run for a cause, and that cause is the YMCA of Central and Northern Westchester!  I'm a Board member of this amazing organization and I have watched first hand the wonderful work it has done for the people of Westchester, in particular crucial services provided to residents of White Plains and their operation of the wonderful Camp Combe for kids!  Nothing keeps you running through a race like knowing it is all for a good cause!

In the past I have agreed to do silly things during each mile for people that donate money to cover that mile, but since I've never done a marathon I think I need to just focus on finishing the race ;p  Donating WILL get you my personal gratitude, a sense that you're making a difference, and a big, Olaf-sized warm hug when I see you in person :)

THANK YOU!!!

YMCA OF CENTRAL AND NORTHERN WESTCHESTER INC wrote -

When this little guy was asked “Who is your favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle?” He exclaimed, “Me!” That’s the kind of confidence you will find in the children that attend our YMCA programs! Having the Y as a place for affordable, enriching and secure childcare is so vital to the success of our children and families.

When you hear the name YMCA, you might think that it’s just a “swim and gym”. In fact, we are much more, with three branches serving a diverse array of needs.

The YMCA of Central & Northern Westchester is comprised of:

White Plains Y, founded in 1927, is a full service fitness facility with 2 pools. Our childcare center provides full-day care for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. We are proud to have been chosen by the City of White Plains School District and the federal government as a certified provider of Universal Pre-Kindergarten. Teen leadership and after school programs are also offered. In addition, we have 160 single residency rooms of affordable housing. This Y provides many low-cost services to children, youth and adults – particularly for vulnerable Westchester residents such as seniors, veterans and low-income families. Your donation can help more people access these essential services.

Community Y of Northern Westchester focuses on childcare, with an early learning center and before & after school programs in schools in Northern Westchester and Putnam Counties. Serving 350 children daily, these programs are consistently filled to capacity! Your gift can allow us to expand and serve more children and families in need of financial aid to participate.

Camp Combe Y is a 90+ acre day camp in Putnam Valley that serves 1200 children each summer. We provide “camperships” for children in need including transportation from underserved, urban areas in Westchester and Putnam Counties. Your generosity will allow more children in need to experience the joys of summer camp.

Together with your help, these three branches serve the entire community year round.

Your gift to the YMCA of Central & Northern Westchester directly supports our ability to provide financial aid assistance at all three of our locations.
