Whether it is through health and fitness programs, swimming lessons, licensed child care, employment/literacy services, immigrant services, leadership training for the not-for-profit sector, outreach and counselling programs for youth or camps for children, youth and families, Y programs inspire people to reach their full potential.

2020 Move to Give Update: This spring we postponed the 6th annual #MOVEtoGIVE with the hopes that we could reschedule the event for summer/fall 2020. As our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of the communities we serve, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Move to Give this year.

We would like to extend our thanks to our amazing sponsors who honoured their pledged sponsorship, with special thanks to Parkbridge Lifestyle Communities who was to be this year's presenting sponsor.

We look forward to next year's #MOVEtoGIVE and appreciate the community support we have received for this great event over the last five years in support of our charitable mission.

We are looking forward to rescheduling our annual #MOVEtoGIVE fundraiser when COVID-19 is behind us, in the meantime, we have created another way to connect and be active – virtually from your home!

Visit our Facebook or Instagram pages to share how you have been able to #MOVEatHOME. Do not be afraid to share your creativity and how you have adapted your space. We look forward to reconnecting YMCA staff, volunteers, and community members - have fun with it!

This year marks the Y's 6th annual "Move to Give" fundraising event. On April 4, 2020, we anticipate more than 1,000 people at 8 different locations will join together to raise funds through a wide variety of physical activities. To kick start fundraising for this massive event, YMCA Child Care and School Age programs will be Moving and Grooving on March 4th. Through these events, our goal is to raise over $100,000 in support of the Y's efforts to build healthy communities.
