Megathon for YMCA Strong Kids

Topping the thermometer!
$63,000+ raised for Megathon

On Saturday, June 11 we held our Megathon Wrap-up Party to celebrate a week of “mega” events and activities to raise awareness and funds for our YMCA Strong Kids campaign. And we’re excited to say we surpassed our goal — and we’re still counting! Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered, danced, cycled, scooter-ed, swam and so much more to raise funds and awareness for YMCA Strong Kids!

Thank you also to our community supporters, the Optimist Club, CIBC and the May Court Club of Oakville for their financial investment in our Megathon and YMCA Strong Kids. Together, we’re helping more people and making our community stronger and healthier!

11,000 pounds!
Throughout Megathon, we also collected nearly 11,000 pounds of clothing at our 44 locations – a record-breaking collection for Kidney Clothes! As a result of this co-charity fundraising initiative, our partner Kidney Clothes made a donation of $1,800 to YMCA Strong Kids! Missed the pick up? You can drop your clothing into the bins outside the Peter Gilgan Family YMCA to support both charities anytime.
