Children and youth in Waterloo Region need our help! 93% of children don't get enough physical activity, and we know that 1 in 4 of our YMCA participants needs assistance to attend.

Join us on March 1, 2014 to get active and raise pledges to open the doors to the YMCA for 1000 children and youth! Participate in one of our group challenges, or create your own challenge in a team or on your own.
