THE IMPACT PROGRAM THROUGH STRONG KIDS
This year, we implore you to join your neighbors in support of the Visser Family YMCA's Impact Program, part of the YMCA's "Strong Kids Campaign." The "Strong Kids Campaign" does just what it implies; builds strong kids who make better decisions, as it provides safe and positive recreation through "scholarship memberships" to the YMCA. Funds from the campaign assist families in enjoying the same positive atmosphere at a cost that fits within their budget.
To put it simply, we provide a place for kids to come after school. Each scholarship for the Impact Program costs $320. The proceeds from the Buck Creek Run go to supply scholarships, meaning your donation stays right here in the Grandville community.
