  • YMCA of Fredericton launches 50/50 Fundraising Campaign

    YMCA of Fredericton launches 50/50 Fundraising Campaign
    (Fredericton, NB – June 23, 2020)

    The YMCA of Fredericton is launching a 50/50 fundraiser, raising resources to give children, adults, seniors, and families access to YMCA programs and services that will enable them to learn, grow and reach their full potential.  Tickets are available for $2 each and can be purchased through the following website:  www.ymca5050.com

    The first draw will take place on Friday, July 10th at noon with a guaranteed jackpot of $1000.  Subsequent draws will take place every Friday at noon on a weekly basis.  Options for ticket pre-payment purchases range from 1 week, 4 weeks, 12 weeks, 24 weeks and 52 weeks. 

    As a charity for more than 162 years, the YMCA of Fredericton relies on donations by individuals, businesses and community partners.  Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, physical participation in community fundraisers is obstacle-laden; therefore, the YMCA is engaging in an online platform to better reach the Community during this time.   

    YMCA Strong Communities is focused on raising much needed resources to give individuals the opportunities they need to live healthier, happier lives.  Your gift will change a life.  The YMCA provides people with a safe place to connect, engage and feel part of their community.  We bring people together through supportive, inclusive and welcoming spaces aimed at improving the health and well-being of all. When you give to the Y, you ensure that a child, teen, adult or senior can access a Y program that they otherwise would not be able to afford. 

    For more information, please contact Shawna White at shawna.white@ymcafredericton.org or (506) 462-3000 ext. 105.

  • Community Face Masks

    We are very excited to welcome you back to the Fredericton YMCA on Monday, June 8! Please note that before you come in, you will need a face mask to enter and travel through the building. You will also pass through a screening station where you will answer 3 COVID-19 related questions and have your temperature taken. Once you're inside, we ask that you respect physical distancing as much as possible.

    Members do not have to wear a mask at all times when they are on the floor of our Wellness Centre, Fitness Classes or Pool — only when physical distancing cannot be guaranteed.

    The Government of New Brunswick has made wearing masks in public buildings mandatory starting on Tuesday, June 9. For more information on this story, please check out this article from @CBCNews: https://bit.ly/2XzljO0
