Join a Cause for Community, Join the Y

When dealing with life’s daily demands, people need a place to go where they can feel supported. Adults need help finding balance in life and motivation in managing their health. Children need safe environments where they’re nurtured and inspired to reach their full potential. Seniors need a place where they can be active and find camaraderie. And, families need opportunities and places to connect and strengthen relationships with one another.

The Oswego Y– a leading nonprofit that strengthens community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility – offers this support and more, and during its bi-annual membership campaign is encouraging the Oswego community to join the Y.

“At the Oswego Y, you’re not only part of an organization, but part of a community and a cause that benefits you and your neighbors,” says Jackie Sheffield, Membership and Financial Development Director, Oswego YMCA. “Here, a membership means more – it’s an opportunity to feel good while being part of a cause that helps make positive changes in people’s lives.”

The Oswego Y’s Membership Madness kicked off March 1 with a Join for Free the entire month of March. This year’s Iron Man Challenge starts March 5, 2012. Tri Training, a Prune A Thon, Cycle Marathon, Group Ex Challenge, Float n Flick are just a few of the fun activities that Membership Madness is offering in March. Also, unveiled this month, is all new cardio equipment in the main Y fitness center.

The Oswego Y offers a variety of programs to the community, with something for everyone, including Aqua Aerobics, Pilates, Kettle Bell, Yoga, Zumba, Cycle, sports leagues, gymnastics, two fitness centers, book club and more!

Last year, the Oswego Y helped hundreds of individuals and adults experience something special through programs, leagues and special events.

The Oswego Y is a not-for-profit charitable organization. Through our Membership for All program, we provide financial assistance to kids, youth, families and seniors to have access to Oswego Y programs and membership.
