The YMCA believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to live healthier, happier lives.

 

The YMCA’s annual fundraising campaign is focused on raising much needed resources that help kids, youth, adults and seniors get access to proven YMCA community programs.

 

Last year, through the generosity of 5,114 donors, the YMCA was able to provide 12,647 people with the financial assistance they needed to reach their potential.

 

The money raised through these ticket sales….

 

  • Gives a teen access to YMCA youth leadership programs, helping them develop confidence and positive peer relationships.
  • Gives a child the opportunity to attend a YMCA summer camp, giving them outdoor experiences and memories to last a lifetime.
  • Gives a senior citizen the chance to maintain good health and develop connections in the community through the YMCA Healthy Heart program.
  • Provides a vulnerable family with an all-inclusive membership to the YMCA so they can get healthy together through swimming, sports, fitness and more.

Soon, however, E.T. falls ill, resulting in government intervention and a dire situation for both Elliott and the alien.
