Reducing Senior Isolation And Providing Virtual Fitness 

On May 13 we will hear from those most vulnerable to the pandemic.

The YMCA is improving health equity across the county and decreasing isolation through virtual fitness classes. We are also working with participants on reducing behaviors related to chronic disease prevention and increasing positive health outcomes community-wide.

Supporting Families With Childcare

Our final night of campaign, May 27, will focus on families.

When the pandemic hit, a lot of parents that still had to work didn't know what to do for care, the YMCA stepped up in the early stages and continue to support working families by providing safe, educational spaces for children.
