Mayor's Prayer Breakfast
Hosted annually, the YMCA Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast continues to boast impressive support from businesses, churches and individuals alike, and is well-known for its inspiring and innovative keynote speakers.
Neighbor-To-Neighbor Christmas Program
Our community brings the spirit of Christmas to 300 underserved families each year, while also strengthening and supporting them with additional complimentary programs and services throughout the year. Each year, hundreds of donors, volunteers, and staff help provide the magic and nostalgia of the Christmas season for the underserved children of our community.
Back To School Supply Drive
Hosted twice annually at the Childs Park YMCA, the Y serves over 800 children each August and January with school supplies. For students, particularly students with a history of struggling in school, going back to school can be a time of anxiety and intimidation often exacerbated by the lack of proper materials crucial to a student’s success.
Healthy Kids Day
Healthy Kids Day is our national initiative with more than 1,300 Ys holding free community events for the entire family. Healthy Kids Day encourages kids and families to stay active, connected and healthy.
Spin-A-Rama is our annual cycling event to support the LiveSSTRONG at the Y progrmam. Team members take turns riding the six-hour duration of the event. Independent riders can sign up for specific time slots. Teams are encouraged to raise $600 to fund one cancer survivor through the LIVESTRONG program as part of the YMCA Annual Campaign.
