Sign up and/or make a pledge

Sign-up sheets are up and ready to go at the Y for those who are able to come run with me at the Y this Friday.  I will be running from 5:00am - 9:00pm.  2 other treadmills, in addition to mine, will be set up in the lobby for others to run/walk on.  You do not need to be a member of the Y to join me that day.  Call 507.287.2260 to sign up for a time slot...they filled up quickly last year, so call early.

If you can't make it to the run and wish to make a donation to the Strong Kids Campaign, send me an email and I will email back a copy of the pledge form or you can call 507.287.2260 to make a pledge.  Remember, the money raised will go to helping kids who need some financial help affording the cost of attending Y programs and camps.  Please help out if you are able.  Thank you.  Jim

From the Rochester Area Family Y's website:
We believe every child deserves the opportunity to experience our programs, regardless of financial difficulties their family might be facing. YMCA programs such as child care, camping, swim lessons, youth sports, LINK, and Y Mentors do more than teach skills; they instill confidence, responsibility, and help young people to be strong in spirit, mind and body. These experiences help our local youth grow into healthy, contributing adults.
With your help, no person will be denied the benefits of a YMCA membership based on financial limitations. Through our Annual Strong Kids Campaign, people just like you come together to make their community stronger. Donations to the Strong Kids Campaign allow the Y to provide membership and program assistance to kids and families who might not otherwise be able to afford to pay for our services. With a commitment to making programs and services available to everyone, the YMCA provided nearly $800,000 in scholarships and program subsidies in 2009 to over 17,000 of our Southeast Minnesota friends and neighbors. We ask that you give generously so that more in our community can share the YMCA experience.
