This year's YMCA Celebrates Champions event was attended by nearly 500 people and raised a record-breaking $260,000! The funds raised will provide boundless opportunities for people of all ages, in the Hartford community, to challenge themselves, develop new skills, grow socially, and lead healthier lives.
Over the past decade, the Wilson-Gray YMCA Youth & Family Center has evolved into a beacon for a brighter future for youth and families in that community. Annually, it engages nearly 4,000 active members, over 500 children in summer camp and after-school programs, and close to 300 youth in leadership development programs.
It was truly a remarkable night! YMCA of the USA President & CEO Kevin Washington presented his vision for a YMCA in the North End of Hartford when he was president and CEO at the YMCA of Greater Hartford. In addition, the night’s featured speakers, women’s basketball hall-of-famer Rebecca Lobo and her husband, renowned sportswriter, Steve Rushin. The couple entertained as they reminisced about their early days at the Y, and how, without its impact, they wouldn’t have the friends and support that they do today.
Thank you to our 2019 event sponsors!
