Every child deserves a YMCA experience. The YMCA Calgary 2018 Strong Kids Campaign kicks off on March 5th. This year, YMCA Calgary will raise over $1.4 million and help provide in excess of 25,000 YMCA experiences to children and youth requiring financial assistance. The Gray Family Eau Claire Strong Kids Campaign target is $350,000, 17% higher than the $301,000 we raised in 2017. YMCA Calgary will have unprecedented growth through 2019 as we open the Shane Homes Rocky Ridge YMCA and Seton YMCA. With the growth will come increased need for financial assistance through Strong Kids dollars. We extend our gratitude to all of you who have chosen to support the Strong Kids Campaign and YMCA Calgary in the past. Together, we continue to make a difference in many children’s lives and help build leaders of tomorrow, who will ensure Calgary remains a vibrant and wonderful place to live and bring up families.
Our Eau Claire Strong Kids Campaign kicks off on March 5 with our Cycle for Strong Kids. Once again there will be pro teams and recreational teams and then the Committee team. This year, the Committee has once again set a fundraising goal of $10,000. Please consider donating and help us ensure all children have access to YMCA experiences.
