Muncie, IN – The YMCA of Muncie recently launched its annual campaign  to ensure that everyone in our community  has access to vital community programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Over 150 friends gathered and learned that the Y is so much more than a gym and swim. The Y is a cause-driven charity dedicated to strengthening community and removing barriers to ensure that people of all backgrounds can come together for the common good. Will Isaacs, Certified Financial Planner at Wealth Strategies and Amelia Clark, Regional Vice President with Meridian Health Services, are leading this year’s campaign and are excited to announce that over 1/3 of the campaign goal has been secured.

Every day, the YMCA of Muncie works to support the people and neighborhoods that need it most by addressing community issues such as school readiness, chronic disease prevention, safety around water and outdoor education.

“Throughout our community, countless people know the Y. But there’s so much more to our Y than one might think, said Chad Zaucha, CEO, YMCA of Muncie.  “The Y is more than a gym. It’s a cause. As a charity, we’re 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.”

This year the YMCA of Muncie hopes to raise $300,000. Funds raised will support kindergarten readiness, provide quality child care for working families, expose children to outdoor educational experiences at Camp Crosley YMCA and ensure every child has the opportunity to belong to our Y and reach their potential.
