COUCH TO 5 K RUNNING PROGRAM
Once again, the Humber Community YMCA will be offering the 9 week Couch to 5 K Running Program. This program has been very successful in the past few years and we are very pleased to offer it again this year. It is designed for participants of all running experiences….from the novice to the person who used to run, but for some reason may have given up and would like to get back into it!
Registration: Pre-registration is advised, but registration will continue into the first week of the training.
Start Date: May 11, 2015
End date: July 9, 2015
Times: Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 6:00 pm (regardless of the weather)
Cost: $20 for current members
$120 for non-members (includes 9 week membership to the Y, so you can also attend our classes or use our fitness facility)
So bring along a good pair of joggers and let’s get out there and RUN!!
We are now at the end of April and can you believe that we have maintained well over 1100 members? That is incredible. It's good to see the snow finally going and we expect our numbers begin to drop once people take their activities out into the beautiful fresh air! In the meantime, if you're not fond of the roads and trails as they're in the process of drying up, why not come on in, meet up with a friend and see what we have to offer to keep you nice and dry. Our spring fitness schedule remains pretty much intact as it did over the winter with all kinds of fitness goodness!!!
The Bay St. George YMCA branch of the YMCA's of Western Newfoundland recently had their 1st Annual Strong Kids Campaign Fitness Blast Fundraiser and raised more than $850!!! All monies raised will enable them to assist individuals and families in the area who do not have the capacity to pay for health and wellness. A huge thank you to all who volunteered and participated. Your generous donation is greatly appreciated.
It's great to see that not much has changed for the Childminding numbers which remains quite high.
All of our Childcare Staff in our Afterschool Programs and our Playing to Learn Programs have been working very hard over the course of the school year to provide much needed childcare to working parents and invaluable learning for our preschoolers. Won't be long now before they'll be winding down the school year and getting excited about their summer break.
Our Community Youth Network continues to remain busy with lots of activities for our youth. From movies to pool to many fun activities, it's great to see youth dropping by to connect with their peers in a safe and fun environment.
Our Cap Site, which provides free internet access to the public, is open to a steady, daily stream of individuals who wish to surf the net for various reasons. While most individuals are just looking to browse the latest happenings on Facebook, etc. a lot of individuals are seeking help in finding employment, retrieving their banking information or looking to pay a bill. In any case, we are pleased to offer this free service to our community.
We hope this gives you a little snapshot of some of the many great things we do here at the YMCA. Stay tuned for our next update this summer.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
