Community members of all ages in need can now benefit from a new campaign at the YMCA of Lethbridge.

On Thursday, the YMCA of Lethbridge launched Shape [Y]our Future to help give YMCA facility and programming access to children, youth, adults, seniors and families.

Pam Haapa-aho, YMCA of Lethbridge’s Director of Fund Development, says this new launch replaces their annual Strong Kids fundraising campaign and moves to a more inclusive one.

“Shape [Y]our Future really focuses on how great the future can be for the YMCA of Lethbridge. it’s intended to ensure everyone that their support really benefits the future of the community and isn’t restricted only to child-focused activities or initiatives,” says Steve Mogdan, interim chair of the board of directors for YMCA of Lethbridge.
