Where the Money Goes
YMCA Strong Kids Program
The YMCA Balsillie Family Branch – Peterborough’s Half Marathon, 5K Run/Walk and our Kids 1K Fun Run has raised close to $650,000, an average of more than $25,000 per year in support of the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign. The YMCA’s annual Strong Kids Campaign is focused on raising much needed financial support for deserving children, teens and families who are unable to afford the full cost of participation in a YMCA program activity.
Participating in this event is not only fun and healthy, it’s providing an important foundation for our youth that will have far reaching benefits for them, their families and our community.
