The Y For All Campaign is more than just raising money. It’s about the life changing impact that the YMCA provides by opening doors to those in need. The child who gains confidence through learning opportunities, the active older adult who is no longer isolated and is living a healthy and active lifestyle, a family given opportunities to spend quality time together, and so many more. The stories of those impacted by the Y have the power to unite and inspire us all.
