ONE DAY. HUGE IMPACT. Why you are the reason Cycle for Strong Kids is a success!
We would like to thank you for your generous donation to our 12th Annual Cycle for Strong Kids fundraising event.
Your gesture of kindness brought significant impact to the success of the day, offering the community another avenue to support the YCMA by way of silent auction.
This is the largest community fundraiser for the YMCA of Okanagan.
100% of funds raised stay in our community and go to help local children, youth and families in need of assistance to access the YMCA via membership or programs.
These donations also ensure critical programs and resources are provided to address some of our communities most pressing issues,
including inactivity, isolation and poverty. 1 in 4 children require financial assistance to access YMCA programs, including adequate and nurturing childcare.
In 2017, thanks to 1,360 incredible donors, $480,000 in financial assistance was awarded to 3,692 people who otherwise
would not have been able to participate in YMCA programs that help build a strong, healthy community.
With your gift to our silent auction, Cycle for Strong Kids 2018 raised just over $85,000!
We are already looking forward to Cycle for Strong Kids in 2019.
