On Friday, March 16th, 2018, the Riverbrook Regional YMCA will be holding its annual Swamp Romp. At 4:00pm, “ROMPERS” have decided that it is cold enough, and they are bold enough to take a freezing dip into the Kiwanis Pond at the Wilton Family YMCA for the youth from Norwalk, Redding and Wilton!
It’s all done for FUN and to raise money for a GREAT CAUSE! Rompers raise funds to support over 3,500 children who participate in year-round programming at the YMCA.
The Y is the starting point for many youth to learn about becoming and staying active, and developing healthy and safe habits they’ll carry with them throughout their lives. The benefits are far greater than just physical health. Whether it’s gaining the confidence that comes from learning to swim or building the positive relationships that lead to good citizenship, participating in youth development programs at the Y is about building the whole child, from the inside out.
What do donations support?
$100 – could save a child’s life by teaching them the life-saving skill of swimming with free swim lessons.
$250 – could reduce the achievement gap by sending a child to summer camp to participate in STEM programs.
$500 – promotes self-reliance for young adults with special needs in the Roaring 20’s Program.
$1,000 – increases family time to a low-income family with an annual membership.
$2,500 – provides a safe place after school for a child of a working parent.
$5,000 – sends a YMCA team to the CT Special Olympics.
Your support changes lives!
