Join the YMCA’s Challenge to Change 50 Lives in 50 Hours

The Morrison and Sara’s YMCA’s are asking the community to help change 50 lives in 50 hours by donating to the YMCA’s Annual Campaign. Your gift has the ability to transform a child’s future by providing access to Y programs that ignite potential and create opportunities to learn, grow and thrive. The challenge runs now through December 18 at 8 a.m.

Your gift supports life-changing programming, including:

Safety Around Water: A water safety course for children taught by certified YMCA swim instructors and lifeguards that teaches basic water safety and swimming skills to reduce the risk of drowning and give children confidence in and around water. Since the program launched in 2015, it has grown from serving 300 children at six local apartment communities to engaging over 1,000 children across 30 apartment communities taught in five different languages.

Y Readers: Since 1999, Y Readers has served over 5,000 students in the greater Charlotte area. In the past three years, nearly 3,000 students were served through summer and before/after school programming, with 98% of after school and 82% of summer participants improving or maintaining their reading level.
