Take the Challenge!

YMCA supports diabetes fight

The YMCA is excited to partner with the Canadian Diabetes Association to promote the 21 Day Challenge.
We are challenging you to take the 21 Day Challenge to end Diabetes! 97,000 people in Saskatchewan live with diabetes and another 176,000 live with pre-diabetes or undiagnosed diabetes. The YMCA believes in adapting a healthy lifestyle in order to help manage, and to prevent or delay, the onset of diabetes. We know that starting a new habit is hard, but research has shown that if you can stick with it for 21 days, it may become a part of your normal routine. So why not sign up for the challenge at: www.21DaysforDiabetes.ca
Join today – don’t forget to pledge yourself $21; that’s one dollar per day to help keep you motivated! If you want to add extra incentive, have your friends and family donate pledges on your behalf to help you stick with your 21 day plan. You will not only help yourself by improving your health, but the health of 276,000 people affected by diabetes in Saskatchewan.

 

 


 Give now to the Strong Kids Campaign!

We gratefully accept donations to the Strong Kids Campaign all year, and 100% of the money raised is used for subsidizing memberships, camps, classes, etc. for those who can’t afford them.
This year’s goal of $130,000 is our highest ever. Our growing community and a poverty rate in Saskatoon estimated by Stats Canada
and the City to be between 10-15% mean there are thousands of children, youth and families that need help, and the overall number is increasing.
People can make donations in person at the YMCA, over the phone (306) 652-7515, or online at ymcasaskatoon.org or www.strongkids.
