On October 20, approximately 700 children from the YMCA Kids Club before-and-after school programs donned their superhero gear and braved the rain at the 4th annual YMCA Walk for Strong Kids event.
The event went off without a hitch! Not even the pouring rain could stop our little superheroes and volunteers from walking 2.5km around Burnaby Lake so that all kids can access YMCA programs. Our little philanthropists gathered pledges from friends and family and their efforts will go a long way towards ensuring every kid has the chance to reach their full potential.
This year's Walk for Strong Kids managed to raise a whopping $15,000 for the YMCA Annual Campaign!
One hundred percent of all funds raised for the YMCA Annual Campaign
support children and families in our YMCA community. One in five children receive financial assistance to access YMCA programs thanks to the support of our generous donors.
