YMCA Strong Kids is an annual fundraising campaign focused on raising much needed resources to provide access to proven YMCA programs that give kids, youth, adults and seniors the opportunities they need to reach their potential and to live healthier, happier lives.

Last year, through the generosity of 4,331 donors, $846,000 was raised through the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign in Greater Vancouver.  Thanks to you, the YMCA assisted 12,279 people to reach their potential.

Our goal this year is to raise $890,000 to provide access to life-enhancing programs for more children and families.

Your donation…
  • Gives a teen access to YMCA youth leadership programs, helping them develop confidence and positive peer relationships.
  • Gives a child the opportunity to attend a YMCA summer camp, giving them outdoor experiences and memories to last a lifetime.
  • Gives a senior citizen the chance to maintain good health and develop connections in the community through the YMCA Healthy Heart program.
  • Provides a vulnerable family with an all-inclusive membership to the YMCA so they can get healthy together through swimming, sports, fitness and more.
