Stories of our community involvement
The excitement is building as the Tree of Hope is almost complete and ready for lighting! 🎄

Join us on the evening of Friday, November 25 for the light up ceremony. All donations to the Tree of Hope support BGC Okanagan and the Y. We both are working hard to ensure local families have access to safe and supportive spaces to experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships, and develop skills for life, regardless of their financial circumstances.

This year all donations will have double the impact as the Stober Foundation will be matching every dollar raised! ❤

We are so grateful to our members for moving and giving in support of our annual Move to Give campaign! ❤There will be a variety of charitable events, and multiple ways to donate to help make memberships and Y programs available to those less fortunate. 💪🏀🏊‍♂️🏋️‍♀️The tacky-tourist theme Walkathon kicked off the campaign and the energy and positivity were infectious! 🕶These #YMoveToGive events give our members the opportunity to get moving and help others access the same health and wellness programs they value themselves, and they are truly a fun way to build morale and community within our centres. 🥳The member-driven charitable campaign will run throughout November and December.http://bit.ly/3hvJJEC

We are so thankful to Barb Leclair for sharing her incredibly inspiring health story in support of the Lake Life Lottery, as she is a great example of the real people the lottery will benefit.

All proceeds from the lottery support the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation and the YMCA as we both continue to make health and wellness resources more accessible in our communities. #lakelifelottery

“The Y is not mine, it belongs to the community, and it’s my job to ensure we are here to serve generations to come. I cannot even imagine what my life would have looked like without the Y. I would not have met my husband and all these talented people, would not have received such incredible training opportunities, and I would not have learned as much about myself and my own capacity.

I’ve always loved to see things evolve so it feels incredible to have worked on such a variety of projects and departments all within the Y. I never started with a specific position in mind, for me it’s always been about doing your best and most meaningful work for the right reasons."

After 25 years and 4 different careers with us, Allyson Graf continues to be a trailblazer in her field. It’s inspiring to read just how many firsts our new CEO has led here at the Y, and how she has helped us evolve into the diverse charity we are today.
