Support your community

All of the money we raise through this event supports the YMCA Readers Program. Y Readers is a nationally recognized literacy program that serves students in grades K-3 who are reading below grade level. The program operates as a six-week summer camp as well as an afterschool program. The mission of Y Readers is to provide the additional support that students need to be proficient in reading by the end of third grade. This is accomplished through a focus on improving students’ literacy skills and self-confidence in the classroom.

The Y is committed to helping all children discover and live their true potential. By combining an engaging curriculum with enthusiastic teachers and volunteers, Y Readers gives students the skills and confidence they need to read on grade level. Y Readers costs $1450 per student. However, through the generous support of our donors, we're able to offer Y Readers to families at no cost.

If you have any changes to your registration or questions, please contact BallantyneYMCACrossfit@ymcacharlotte.org.

Thanks, and see you Oct. 6!
