The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka is pleased to announce they have received a three-year commitment from AGNORA located in Collingwood, Ontario. The donation is in support of the Y’s annual fundraising campaign.

The money donated will help support healthy, active living in Collingwood by providing financial assistance to children, adults and seniors to participate in local YMCA programs.

“We are so thankful for the donation and support from AGNORA. They have taken a holistic approach to health and wellness within their own organization and truly understand the importance of making access to a healthy lifestyle accessible to all,” said Brian Shelley, Vice President, YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka. “Five local families over the next three years will be able to access Y programs thanks to AGNORA’s gift. This is incredible community leadership.”

The YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka provides a wide variety of programs and services across the communities of Simcoe, Muskoka and Parry Sound. YMCA programs inspire people to reach their full potential and are dedicated to building stronger and healthier communities.

Last year the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka provided over $1,000,000 in financial assistance to 15,000 children, youth, adults and seniors. One in five Collingwood YMCA members are supported through financial assistance.

Donations to the YMCA of Simcoe/Muskoka ensure access to these quality programs and services including – health, fitness and recreation programs, education, child care, immigrant and employment services, camp, youth leadership, volunteer development and more.

“We have a mantra at AGNORA, ‘make everyday the best day ever.’ Everyone deserves the opportunity to make that happen. The YMCA offers a multitude of programming that touches on so many aspects of health and wellness. And through these initiatives, the people of our community are given the chance to grow, develop happy and harmonious relationships, and ultimately, live life to the fullest. We are pleased to offer this donation to our local YMCA,” said Richard Wilson, President, AGNORA.
