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 cancer recovery at the Y as part of the YMCA Annual Campaign.
