“Throughout our community, most people know the Y, but there’s so much more to our Y than one might think.” said Fred Bulken, who is co-chairing the campaign with Jim Schreck. “The Y is more than a gym. It’s a cause.”

As a charity, the Y is dedicated to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the nation’s health and well-being, and giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

Every day, the Fulton Family YMCA works to support the people and neighborhoods that need it most by addressing community issues.

YMCA programs fight poverty, boost academic achievement, nurture creativity, reduce drowning deaths, prevent diabetes, and strengthen families.

And through the generosity of donors, the Y offers financial aid to ensure that everybody can belong to the Y, regardless of their financial situation.

To support these community-strengthening efforts, Fulton Family YMCA volunteers seek to raise $35,000 through their annual campaign.

To learn more about how you can support the Y’s cause, please contact Lisa Pachmayer, interim executive director of the Fulton Family YMCA, at 598-9622, or [email protected]
