Fundraising Event for the Maplewood Family YMCA
The Y isn’t just the name on the building. It’s a spirit, a movement and a cause. Members join because they believe in the YMCA – and the values its stands for. The Y has proudly served the Rochester and Irondequoit communities since 1916. Together with community members, they nurture the potential of kids, help people understand and improve their health, and provide opportunities to give back and support their neighbors.
The community really came together in a safe manner on Saturday, August 8th to support and help fund one of its own, the Maplewood YMCA.
An amazing Zumba event was held in Maplewood Park next to the beautiful and historic Rose Garden. It was a wonderful example of the community coming together from nearby neighborhoods. Zumba instructors who live outside the Lower Falls area gave of themselves to participate alongside the professional Zumba instructors from the Maplewood Y. A local videographer, Leilani Hernandez, captured the fun and excitement with photos and videos of the entire celebration.
The fundraising event clearly showed how respected the Maplewood YMCA is for the work it does in the Lower Falls community. Donations can still be sent to Donate – YMCA. Be sure to select the Maplewood Branch to receive your donation.
Your support means so much. The work that the Y does is so important to the families that depend on the Maplewood Branch.
