engaging all families
Our Community's Need:
Nationally, obesity takes 34 lives every hour. Every day, 700 people are diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. 1 in 3 children will develop Type 2 Diabetes. Community health and the obesity epidemic are most prevalent in our border community, an area with a significantly diverse population. A vast majority of our YMCA families reside in one of the most economically challenged areas of our region.
As the leading organization for healthy lifestyles in the south San Diego, a top priority for our Y is preventing chronic
disease and obesity.

- $50 per month makes it possible for a family in our south bay community to become involved members of our Y who otherwise could not afford it.
- $100 per month helps offset the costs for two military families to become YMCA members.
