Indianapolis is honored to be the host city for the 2014 & 2015 YMCA Swimming National Long Course Championships, and the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis is proud to play a supporting role.  Volunteer opportunities and activities throughout the day are available for ages 11 and up!

Baxter earns grant from Johnson County Community Foundation

The Baxter YMCA recently received a $1,000 grant from the Johnson County Community Foundation, Inc.  The money will be used to purchase supplies for the Y’s Diabetes Prevention Program and LiveSTRONG Program benefiting Johnson County residents enrolled these YMCA programs. 

The Y currently offers programs to battle childhood obesity, diabetes prevention; as well as, offering services to cancer survivors through the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA exercise program.  Johnson County Community Foundation funds will allow the Y to provide these programs to many more individuals through sliding scale fees and financial assistance.

First Merchants Charitable Foundation makes generous donation to Annual Campaign

The Baxter YMCA received a generous donation in the amount of $2,500 from First Merchants Charitable Foundation last month.  Though sponsorships such as these, the Y is able to provide financial assistance to families and individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford to participate in enriching YMCA programs.  Thank you First Merchants Charitable Foundation!
