Where the Money Goes

YMCA Strong Kids Program

The YMCA Balsillie Family Branch – Peterborough’s Half Marathon, Half a Half, 5K Run/Walk
and our Kids 1K Fun Run has raised close to One Million dollars, an average of more than
$25,000 per year in support of the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign. The YMCA’s annual
Strong Kids Campaign is focused on raising much needed financial support for deserving
children, teens and families who are unable to afford the full cost of participation in a
YMCA program activity.

Participating in this event is not only fun and healthy; it’s providing an important foundation
for our youth that will have far reaching benefits for them, their families and our community.
