Fit For A Purpose

Fit For A Purpose


The YMCA of the Inland Northwest’s largest fundraising event of the year returns, but this time we’ve gone virtual. While we won’t be able to all join together this year, it also means you have 24 days to complete your challenges. From April 1 -24 get out and bike, walk, hike, swim, or however you prefer to exercise in support of the Y’s work to help those in need. Join other generous and fun-loving Friends of the YMCA of the Inland Northwest as we look to raise $70,000 for important needs in our community like:

• Early Learning Education
• Before and After-School Programs
• Pathways to Wellness
• Camp Reed Scholarships
• Membership For All
• Summer Food Programs
• Teen Mentoring
• Youth Sports Scholarships
• And Many More…

Your goals are simple:
1) Ask your friends, relatives, neighbors, and co-workers to donate as you work to hit your fitness goals.
2) Have fun!!

Those who raise at least $100 will receive this year’s commemorative Fit for a Purpose T-Shirt. If you raise $250 or more you’ll receive a limited edition Fit for a Purpose Champion Medal!

Sign up with a group of friends or join solo and make friends as we get some exercise while raising money for a great cause!
