About us

Excitement is in the air as we gear up for the Y's 10th #MOVEtoGIVE fundraising event, set to unfold on the weekend of June 8, 2024.

Our collective aim is to rally and raise $100,000, providing essential support for the heart of the YMCA—our programs and services that impact your community.

This annual event plays a pivotal role in breaking down financial barriers, ensuring that local families and individuals of all ages can access our transformative programs. It's incredible to think that 1 in 10 families in our region depend on crucial financial support to make memberships and programs accessible. Across Simcoe, Muskoka, and Parry Sound communities, the YMCA provides diverse programs and services. From health and fitness initiatives, swimming lessons, and licensed child care to employment/literacy services, immigrant services, leadership training for the not-for-profit sector, and camps for children, youth, and families—the Y's programs inspire people to reach their full potential.

We owe our successes to the incredible support from generous donors and corporate partners. Over a decade of unwavering commitment, we've shaped how we build healthier communities and reimagine the possibilities. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who's been part of this transformative journey!

Move to Give has raised over $900,000 in the past nine events and engaged over 10,000 participants! Your contribution is more than dollars—it's an investment in the well-being of our community, propelling us toward a brighter and healthier future for all.

Let’s MOVE once more, celebrating our 10th event and continuing to support those in our community.

Your participation adds to the momentum, ensuring that we can create positive local change together.
