How Do I Participate in Community Week?

YMCA Community Virtual 5k Race

Represent your borough and run our virtual 5k!

All participants get a Y medal, and the Borough with the most collective miles run will be crowned the Y Borough Champion. A $25 entry fees go towards sending kids to summer day camp. 

Sign Up Here now to participate in the run! The run will take place between May 22-31.  

In addition to amplify your impact for Y kids, set up a GoFundMe fundraiser


Donate Your Totes To Feed Families

Help feed hungry families by donating your lightly used totes and reusable grocery bags at your local Y branch.

The Y's Food Distribution Program, launching in June, will serve families in North Brooklyn, Coney Island and Flatbush, and bags are key for distribution.

Support Your Community

Day Camp is critical for kids this summer, bringing them out from behind their screens and into a world of adventure, and allowing parents to return to work knowing they are safe. For many families day camp is unaffordable, especially this year. 

Donate today to transform their summers -- and your gift will be matched through May 31st! Give Today:
