    Charity Name:Springfield YMCA


    The Springfield YMCA is committed to and focused on nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. At the Y, no child is turned away from our programs or services for an inability to pay. Our Strong Kids Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to children in need so they may find a safe, adult supervised second home at the Y, learn and get active in our sport leagues, create in our art and humanities programs and make friend and memories at summer camp. We raise funds for our kids, so we may invest in their health and well-being. At the Y, strengthening community is our cause, and our community is stronger when our kids are healthy and happy! All funds raised from the Color Dash go directly to our Strong Kids Scholarship Fund.
