Did you know that 1 in 4 Americans aged 65+ falls every year? Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. Falls are costly—in dollars and in quality of life. However, falling is not an inevitable part of aging. Through practical lifestyle adjustments, evidence-based programs, and community partnerships, the number of falls among seniors can be reduced substantially.

Here at the Euclid Family YMCA we hosted our first annual Pie At The Y to raise funds for our Annual Campaign. Members entered a raffle for a chance to pie their "favorite" staff member in the face. The Euclid Family YMCA never wants to turn someone away for their inability to pay. Our Annual Campaign provides those funds to ensure we keep that promise. This scholarship program is open to youth, adult, and family memberships regardless of participants socio-economic status.
We believe every person and every community deserves a chance to thrive. When you donate to the Y, you're giving those in need the opportunity to thrive.

The mission of the YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that help healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
