2022 Move to Give Update: We are excited to announce the 8th annual #MOVEtoGIVE as a Passport Challenge from June 4th to June 11thwith both virtual and in-person activities. Over the past two years, the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka and our community were dramatically impacted by COVID 19. The past two Move to Give events have had to be exclusively virtual. We are happy to be able to offer both as options for our June Move to Give event. This will provide the opportunity for anyone anywhere throughout our region to participate in activities of their choice.
As our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of the communities we serve, in-person activities will follow all public health guidelines.
We want to extend a big thank you to our amazing sponsors who honoured their pledged sponsorship over the years.
We look forward to everyone's participation in this year's #MOVEtoGIVE and appreciate the community support we have received for this great event over the last 7 years to support our charitable mission in building healthy communities.
The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka provides a wide variety of programs and services across the communities of Simcoe, Muskoka and Parry Sound. 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.
This past year has been a difficult one for our YMCA. However, because of the financial support of our donors and corporate sponsors, we have been able to reshape and reimagine the way that we work with people throughout the pandemic. The YMCA has continued to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of our communities. The Y remains committed to building healthy communities across Simcoe County, Muskoka and Parry Sound. Throughout the pandemic, the Y has:
- Provided licenced Child Care and Before & After School Care to support working families
- Connected people to free virtual programming with YMCA at Home to support health and well-being at home
- We have maintained our support for our most vulnerable community members by delivering programs for immigrant adults facing unemployment and youth at risk
- Supported YMCA Staff facing financial hardship as a result of facility closures
YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is dedicated to the growth of all persons in spirit, mind and body with a sense of responsibility to each other and the global community. For more information, go to www.ymcaofsimcoemuskoka.ca.
