In Canada, nine out of ten young Canadians are not getting enough daily exercise, LBW is committed to helping build a strong community and keeping our children strong and healthy.
This year we are supporting YMCA Niagara’s Cycle-a-thon to help kids in Niagara. The Cycle-a-thon is being held at all of the YMCA’s across the Niagara Region on February 22. From 8am to 2pm members of the community will be cycling on stationary bikes in the six YMCA foyers of the Port Colborne, Welland, Fort Erie, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and West Niagara YMCA locations.
The Strong Kids Campaign has established a goal of helping 13,000 children through raising $380,000 for 2014. These funds will help families in Niagara access YMCA programs, memberships and services.
Through, our sponsorship we are able to provide an active and fun experience to seven children in Niagara by sending them to YMCA camps.
