Being a non-facility Y means that we do not have a typical swim/gym facility. All of our programs are provided through community partnerships.

 

 

 

 

5210 Project

The 5210 Project is part of an initiative development by the American Medical Association, Centers for Disease and Prevention, and Maternal and Child Health Bureau to address America’s health crisis of overweight and obese children and families. We received funding from United Way to help educate children at Kiroli, Robinson, Jefferson Elementary, MLK Jr. High, and Richwood Middle.
