For many families, summer ends and fall begins when flag football and soccer kick off for their children. But for many kids, without financial assistance, the opportunity to run, play, build confidence and learn about teamwork isn’t possible.
According to experts, kids who aren’t able to participate in activities, including youth sports, are more likely to become obese and engage in other unhealthy behaviors. However, with the help of community partners and donors like you, the Y can make sure every child who wants to play youth sports can do so.
Each year, the YMCA of Central Kentucky provides financial assistance to about one out of four children so that they may participate in sports programs. Through your generous giving, we can make a difference in their lives – providing the opportunity to be healthy, thrive and positively connect with other kids.
Please consider making a gift today to help us provide financial assistance to kids to play youth sports in Central Kentucky this fall and winter.
