R.C. Durr YMCA
The R.C. Durr YMCA is committed to improving the quality of life for men, women, and children across our community. But, we need your help. Your generosity helps nurture the potential in children and youth, promotes healthy living, and fosters a sense of social responsibility. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our community. The R.C. Durr YMCA engages over 9,500 individuals each year, including over 1,800 families. Supporting youth development, the R.C. Durr Y helps over 325 kids be successful in school through the afterschool programs, keeps almost 500 kids minds and bodies active all summer long through day camp programs, and launches almost 90 kids on a path of life-long learning through the preschool program. In line with the Y’s healthy living focus, the youth sports programs promote teamwork and build self confidence while teaching the fundamental skills of the game. The Y also teaches over 2,000 swim lessons each year, ensuring everyone is safe and has fun around water. And every day, hundreds of people pursue their health and wellness goals by working out in the fitness center or participating in a group fitness class. No matter where you look, you see people learning, growing and thriving.
