The Fourth Annual Strong Kids Campaign kicks off with the official launch at Massey Drive on Monday, February 17!
The YMCA is a leading Canadian charity and proceeds from this campaign stay in Prince George.
Our goal this year is to raise $19,640 to send local underprivileged children to Camp Kanannaq and the Aurora Leadership Program (we were incorporated in 1964 - fifty years ago!)
The famous Bird Feeder Silent Auction returns and other activities will be announced soon. Check back to learn more or follow us on Facebook!
"Thank you for supporting the YMCA Aurora program...it makes you take responsibility but teaches you how to be a great camper....
"Thank you for the best camp ever! We went on canoe trips, we went on hikes and we were role models to the little kids..."
"Thank you to the YMCA Sponsors. If it was not for you I would be at home doing nothing. I got to learn new things but most of all I got to see the other side of me."
Seven committed individuals have volunteered for the Second Annual Strong Kids Challenge participating in a variety of YMCA events such as fitness classes and volunteering while collecting points and raising funds.
Their goal is to raise $1,964 each (in keeping with our 50th anniversary theme!)
