The YMCA of Central Florida is opening its doors to the community to help local kids have the “Best Summer Ever” at YMCA summer camps. As part of their annual “Let’s Move for a Better World” initiative, locals are encouraged to exercise at the Y to collect “MOVE” points. For every 350,000 “MOVE” points gathered from March 12 to 31, one child will go to summer camp for free.
The YMCA of Central Florida is asking for the public’s help to send youth in the community to their “Best Summer Ever.” From March 12 to 31, both YMCA members and non-members can donate their work outs to a good cause by participating in “Let’s Move for a Better World” at the following participating family centers:
- Doctor P. Phillips YMCA
- Downtown Orlando YMCA
- Frank Deluca YMCA
- Oviedo YMCA
- Roper YMCA
“Let’s Move for a Better World” is a global fitness challenge organized by Technogym. The company’s state-of- the-art fitness equipment allows people to track and monitor their workouts through its cloud-based platform. Throughout the duration of “Let’s Move for a Better World” the YMCA will be tracking and collecting “MOVEs” on its Technogym equipment and for every 350,000 “MOVEs” the nonprofit collects, it will provide one local child in need with a dream summer experience, including complimentary access to YMCA day camps, sports programs, aquatics and Camp Wewa.
“At the YMCA of Central Florida, we’re committed to making sure every child in our community has access to the tools and resources they need to reach their full potential,” said Dan Wilcox, President and CEO. “As innovators and leaders in healthy living and child development, we believe that a healthy Spirit, Mind and Body are key to unlocking that potential. We’re excited to once again invite the entire community to join alongside us in our movement to spread kindness to kids, all while taking care of themselves and their health one move at a time.”
To get involved in the initiative, non-members can sign up for an exclusive guest pass either online or at participating family centers. For more information, visit: ymcacf.org/letsmove.
