Strong Kids: Thank You for your Support & Contributions

Dear Don,

As we wrap up our 13th Annual Strong Kids fundraising event, we reflect on how luck we are to have supporters like you who believe in what we do at the North Suburban YMCA.

Here at our Y, the goal is to make sure that every child, senior or family member has the opportunity to participate in life changing programming and classes, regardless of their ability to pay.

This year’s fundraising goals exceeded our expectations, making it our most successful Strong Kids fundraiser in 13 years raising more than $350,000.

Thanks to your contributions and support, we are not only able to help people less fortunate than us, but we are able to raise additional critical funds to help “save our home” and upgrade important facility needs to our Y in 2019.

Thanks to your support as a Diamonds Sponsor we will be able to help more than 2800 deserving people a year with scholarship assistance for life saving swim lessons, summer camp, special needs classes, STEM programming and much more.

Every dollar goes a long way in helping us build happier families and stronger communities.

Thank you again for your donation! The money raised at the event makes a real difference in the lives of these children, seniors and families. None of this could be possible without people like you who believe in giving back and supporting your community.

It means the world to us!

With gratitude,

Kanda McMullen
