Donate to Celebrate 175th Birthday of the YMCA

I am honored to be an instructor at the San Diego County YMCAs. This year they are celebrating their 175th birthday and this month is their Annual Fundraising Campaign. The funds from this campaign go to support the almost 400,000 people - nearly 1 in 8 San Diegans - that participating in their programs or utilize our services (learn more about our efforts in our Annual Report).
But San Diego communities are continually evolving and facing new challenges every day. That's why they intend to double their impact by 2025, touching the lives of more than 800,000 people every year. Here's how:
  • They are planning to build a new, full-service YMCA facility, with several expanding neighborhoods being considered as potential locations.
  • All of the existing facilities are scheduled to be enhanced and improved to better serve their communities.
  • The Annual Campaigns held each year will help provide access to these facilities and programs by ensuring they are affordable and available to the most vulnerable populations in San Diego.
They will strengthen their endowment as an investment in the future for scholarships, facilities and more.
With your help, the funds raised will ensure that everyone in San Diego has the chance to be healthy, confident, connected and secure — both now and into the future. Whether it's a one-time contribution or a pledge for a larger gift over the course of the year, know that your generosity will help your and your neighbors to learn, grow and thrive at the Y.
With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being and provides opportunities to give back and support our neighbors.

Copley YMCA Yogathon Friday February 22

Coming your way on 2/22/19 at Copley Price YMCA:

A special  two hour master Yoga class led by the amazing Pattaya and me (Jackie G) on Friday, February 22rd from 6pm-8pm on the patio.

All are invited with a Suggested Donation of $20. Open to everyone in the community - membership not required!

All proceeds are for the 2019 Annual Fundraising Campaign to pay for the Y’s amazing programs like Livestrong to assist those in cancer treatment or recover with their wellness goals, and scholarship camps and memberships for those in our community who can’t otherwise afford it.

Membership dues help keep the facility open but donations to campaigns like this help sustain the YMCAs mission to serve.

I hope you can attend!!
