Send in a Toonie to support the YMCA Kids Challenge…

22 May

On May 24th, more than 20,000 kids from across the GTA will take part in the YMCA Kids Challenge and walk to make a difference in their communities. Brownridge Public School will be participating in this worthwhile opportunity by walking in our neighbourhood.

The YMCA Kids Challenge is a fundraising event in support of the YMCA of Greater Toronto. The YMCA child care community comes together on May 24th to participate in walks and celebrate healthy living as well as philanthropy. Their goal this year is to raise $60,000 online and the remaining $190,000 in offline donations, totaling $250,000!

Funds raised will create more spaces for children and families at their health and fitness centres, child cares, camps and more. A card was sent home a couple of weeks ago asking each student to bring a toonie to school to support this worthy cause. If you have not done so already, we ask that you send in a toonie to support the YMCA Kids Challenge.YMCA_KidsChallenge_2_kids_logo
