Each year we hold special events so the community can be engaged in a healthy way and to raise money for our financial assistance program. Athlete fundraising, donors, and sponsors are a key part in making our events a success. This year we plan on giving $1,700,000 in financial assistance to people of all ages and backgrounds -- but we can't do it alone!
The money raised for the YMCA Peaks to Portland Swim to Benefit Kids is crucial for the YMCA of Southern Maine to be able to help all kids reach their full potential through programs like swim lessons, summer camp, and child care. Because of you, we're able to give kids the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, regardless of ability to pay. We believe that together we can help all youth reach their full potential!
