SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
The YMCA of Callaway County exists to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.
We do it by teaching kids new skills that build self-confidence, character values and leadership. We do it by helping adults and families lead healthy lifestyles. We do it by connecting older adults to an active support network. We do it by providing outlets to give back to those in need. People engage with the Y on one level, but they soon find a deeper meaning to their activities and a connection to those around them. Ultimately, at its highest form, they feel compelled to volunteer, to give back and help others strengthen the entire community.
Here are just a few of the YMCA programs helping to strengthen the Callaway County area:
Fall Festival & Monster Dash 5K-October 26, 2019
The YMCA is hosting a day of family fun with the 4th Annual Fall Festival & Monster Dash 5K. Proceeds for this event will benefit Bright Futures Fulton. 5K is open to all ages and Halloween costumes are encouraged! Decorate a pumpkin, get your face painted and enjoy the bounce house before the race! Concessions will be available until 1130AM. Register HERE
Bright Futures Fulton exists as a framework of support to meet the basic needs of students in the Fulton Public School District within 24 hours. Additionally, Bright Futures Fulton matches students with community champions through the mentoring program, Hornet W.I.N.G.S, which allows the community to share in the responsibility and pride of helping students succeed through meaningful relationships!

22nd Annual Auction & Dinner- April 4, 2020
SAVE THE DATE
This year’s event is set for April 2nd, 2020, and includes dinner as well as a live and silent auction. As always, all proceeds benefit YMCA program & membership scholarships for families and children in need.
More than ever, support is needed for YMCA families! In 2018, over $35,000 in membership scholarships and over $10,000 in program assistance were provided for families and youth, making YMCA services accessible to over 1,100 individuals, who otherwise may not have been able to participate.
Thank you to all who supported the 22nd Annual YMCA Auction & Dinner. We are grateful for your commitment to healthy living, youth development and social responsibility.
