From June 3-9, the YMCA of Oakville is excited to host Megathon, our annual “mega” week of activities to raise funds for the YMCA Strong Kids campaign! Megathon will inspire everyone in our community to unleash their inner superhero and raise funds for YMCA Strong Kids Campaign to help more children and families in our community benefit from a YMCA experience!

Our goal this year is to raise $75,000.00

At the YMCA, we believe that every child should have a high quality child care experience, be able to go to summer camp, learn to swim, play sports and develop leadership skills. And that every child should have a place where they form friendships, gain confidence — and belong.  But not every family can afford to provide these things for their children.  Every day these families rely on us for support.
