The Madison Area YMCA kicked off its Staff Appeal for the Y’s 2016 in the Gymnastics Center with staff members jumping, tucking and flipping into the Gymnastics Center’s foam pit.

The Madison Area YMCA’s Annual Campaign raises awareness and funds for Y financial assistance that enables hundreds of children and families to participate in Y membership, programs and services including child care, early childhood education, and summer camps at the Madison Area YMCA and F.M. Kirby Children’s Center of the Madison Area YMCA. The campaign is one of the ways that allows the Madison Area Y to provide assistance to anyone who resides or works within its local service area. Support is provided based on demonstrated need, with the goal that no one be turned away from membership regardless of income or background.
