Team YMCA is running in the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon raising funds for the YMCA of Greater New York! They're Counting on Us... Contributions to the YMCA's Annual Campaign ensure that no child or family is turned away from life-enhancing YMCA programs because of the inability to pay. Each year, the YMCA of Greater New York provides financial assistance to tens of thousands of local youth and families in need. These requests are now rising to unprecedented levels. The YMCA of Greater New York, through its annual fund-raising, wants to be there to meet them. We're Counting on You... The YMCA exists to promote the healthy development of all kids and their families regardless of their financial means. Our goal this year is $7.5 million. Each dollar contributed to the YMCA Annual Campaign goes directly to making YMCA programs and membership available to those in need.
