2012 Campaign Kickoff

Posted on February 8, 2012 - 11:00

At the YMCA, our doors are open to everyone … regardless of ability to pay. Through scholarships and reduced fees, we can offer a wide variety of programs and services to kids and families in our community. Every year through our Strong Communities Campaign, supporters like you help us to do that.

On Saturday, February 4, we held our annual Campaign Kickoff event at the Beaverton Hoop YMCA. This event celebrates our many volunteers, board members and volunteer campaigners, and gets everyone excited about our Strong Communities Campaign.

On January 11, our Beaverton Hoop YMCA branch will be launching its Healthy Living class—a new way to look at life-long health. The Healthy Living difference is in approaching exercise, goal setting and gradual behavior changes in a supportive group environment. Through group discussion and exercise, participants help to motivate each other and stay on track.
