The YMCA cares about the same things you care about: raising healthy and resilient kids, ensuring youth feel confident and supported, and helping people feel healthy and connected to others in the community. As one of Medicine Hat's largest operational charities, we focus on helping children and families thrive, promoting healthy living, and fostering belonging and connection. The YMCA of Medicine Hat is pleased to be one of the select Alberta charities to benefit from the Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink in which donations to our Strong Kids program are eligible to be matched up to 50%.

The Strong Kids Program is the annual campaign that raises money throughout the year to provide children, youth, adults, seniors, and families facing financial challenges the opportunity to reach their full potential for health and wellness through the Assisted Membership Program that offers financial assistance for YMCA memberships and camp fees. Approximately 10-12% of our members utilize the assisted membership program and our goal for 2020 is to raise $75,000 to provide access to life-enhancing programs for more children and families.
