Catching Joy was pleased to be a part of the West Suburban YMCA fundraiser, 17th Annual Angino Memorial Road Race and Family Field Day. There were fun races for kids and adults and everyone showed lots of energy and spirit! Catching Joy hosted a children’s activity table where kids will made signs/pictures/cards for others including the supporters of Partners With Youth. Thanks to all who participated in this great event!
The YMCA uses funds raised through the Partners with Youth campaign to offer financial support to families in need and create new and wonderful programs. The programs and services educate and nurture the young, the old and everyone in between. Its programs help children grow, keep seniors healthy, social and active and create an unshakable family bond. None of this would be possible without your support.
Since 1993, The West Suburban YMCA has raised over $115,000 for various local charities through our Annual Angino Memorial Road Race & Family Field Day. This year, they will use a portion of the proceeds to honor two YMCA families, the Heilbrons and the McCarthys. We plan to donate in memory of Joseph Heilbron to The Jimmy Fund and in memory of Bill McCarthy, Jr. to the Neuro-Oncology Research Fund at Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The remaining funds raised will benefit our annual Partners with Youth campaign, which aids YMCA children and families in need.
