About Strong Kids
YMCA Strong Kids is our annual fundraising campaign. The Strong Kids campaign focuses on raising much needed resources to support proven YMCA programs that give kids the opportunities they need to live healthier, happier lives now, but also to grow into productive adults.
Supporting the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign directly supports children, young adults, and families in Brandon and Westman. Everyone is welcome at the YMCA.
Your generous donation will help the YMCA to ensure people of all ages are healthier and more productive regardless of their background or financial situation.
· Helping a child learn to swim or experience summer camp

· Enabling a family to use a trusted, quality child care
By giving today, you can help our kids build a better community for tomorrow. Every kid deserves a chance.
Supporting Kids in Our Community
Strong Kids are referred by YMCA volunteers, the Brandon School Division, Child and Family Services, Big Brothers and Sisters, YWCA, ministers, Mental Health Services, and various other government agencies as well as private individuals.
Strong Kids have opportunities which include: full YMCA Membership, Summer Day Camp, community youth programs, leadership and development programs, Family programs, swim lessons, gymnastics, weight training, sports & recreation, gym and swim.
The Strong Kids campaign is our chance to fully realize and fulfill our obligation to all of the children in our community, not just a select few. Last year, the Brandon Family YMCA provided Strong Kids memberships to over 300 youth and families.
Volunteers Are Key
We could not run the campaign without our volunteers. The 2013 campaign is led by Co-Chairs Jordan Ludwig and Tyril Froese. We have approximately 20 volunteer callers that make over 300 Strong Kids calls during February and March. If you are able to help out with the campaign, please contact Alisa Nerbas at the YMCA firstname.lastname@example.org or 727-5456 ext 33.
