YMCA of Eastern Ontario Launches YMCA at Home: FREE YMCA Virtual Programs

Kingston & Brockville, ON – The YMCA of Eastern Ontario, along with other YMCAs across Canada, has launched free online programming and workouts through a new digital platform:  YMCA at Home. Although we are closed, we remain committed to our communities. YMCA at Home will help everyone to stay healthy and connected from the comfort of their homes.

“As a Y we pride ourselves on always being there for our communities, so we are excited to offer YMCA at Home,” said Rob Adams, CEO for YMCA of Eastern Ontario. “This is an excellent platform to help all of us stay healthy and active. We have activities for all levels and ages from kids to seniors.”

YMCA at Home features Y programs and workouts from YMCAs all over Canada and will help everyone get their daily dose of their favourite Y programs. New activities are being added regularly. Learn more about YMCA at Home by visiting www.ymcahome.ca

The YMCA is a charity serving our area for over 160 years. During these unprecedented times, the Y needs your help more than ever to meet three main goals: to continue to serve those most in need in our community, to maintain our facilities while they are closed and to ramp up your favourite programs faster when we re-open. Please visit our webpage to make your gift that helps to strengthen our community.

YMCA of Eastern Ontario is dedicated to the growth of all persons in spirit, mind and body with a sense of responsibility to each other and the global community.
