Fight Like a Girl…Kick Pancreas! #JulieStrong

01:04 pm

I am writing for a friend of mine who just recently got diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Julie is a 37 year old single mom of two young boys, Jordan (17) and Josh (9). We are having a benefit for her on March 8 at Jim and Jacks on the River in hopes to alleviate some of the financial burden that her family is facing during this difficult time. I have attached a flyer and am asking for any donations of any sort. We are having a basket raffle, silent auction along with many other things. Thanks in advance for any help or coverage you can give us in this horrible situation. Thanks!

The Shamrock Shuffle

07:00 am

The Shamrock Shuffle presented by Park National Bank, now in its 9th Year, has become one of West Chester’s signature events. Hosted by the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty, the Shuffle takes place on Saturday, March 14, 2015 and is supported by West Chester Township. Proceeds from the event support the Foundation’s Community Grants Fund, as well as many participating charity organizations. Last year the Shamrock Shuffle attracted 5,000+ participants and raised more than $88,000. The event has been voted Best Charity Race in Cincy Magazine’s Best of the North Awards for the past three years.

This year the Shuffle includes two chip-timed races, the Contingent 5k and UCBMA 10k as well as the new Taco Bell Main Event Family Race, for those who prefer a less hectic pace. The Ikea Leprechaun Lap will be available for children ages 3-10. The Block Party is back with the Tri-County Heating & Cooling Kegs and Eggs Breakfast and, new this year, live music by local musician Brent Maez. Thanks to our many generous sponsors the Block Party offers food, drinks and a festive environment!

“The Shamrock Shuffle is truly one of the best events we host,” said Karen Gibbs, Director of Programs & Marketing at the Community Foundation. “Not only does it build a sense of community and raise dollars for West Chester/Liberty, it fulfills our mission to encourage & support philanthropy with the Shuffle Gives Back program.”

Shuffle Gives Back allows non-profit organizations to register a team to raise money for their specific cause or interest. The organization earns grant dollars for each person registered on their team, without having to collect pledges. More than 60 charity teams have registered so far in 2015. Visit www.theshamrockshuffle.com for a full breakdown of how much money charities are eligible to earn per participant.

For more information about the Shamrock Shuffle or to register for the race, visit www.theshamrockshuffle.com. Registration is $35.00 and includes a 2015 Shamrock Shuffle long sleeve performance t-shirt, guaranteed through Sunday, March 8th.

There are many opportunities available to volunteer at the Shuffle. Please contact us at info@theShamrockShuffle.com or call the Foundation office at 513-874-5450 if you are interested in getting involved.

Healthy Kids Day

10:00 am

Healthy Kids Day is a National YMCA event. Over 1,300 Ys across the country are taking part in Healthy Kids Day, holding free community events that are open to all kids and families and filled with fun, active play and educational opportunities. Each Association and/or branch plans their event according to their needs.

Our event will be held on Saturday, April 25th from 10am-1pm at the Hughes Center, an extentsion of our YMCA Camp Campbell Gard. Address for Camp – 4803 Augspurger Road, Hamilton, OH 45011. Specific directions available to Hughes Center.

Summer is the time for kids to get up, get out and grow. But for some kids, exposure to activities that stimulate the body and mind ends with the school year. In fact, research shows that kids are prone to gain more weight and fall behind in studies. On April 25, the Y will celebrate Healthy Kids Day®, our national initiative to improve the health and well-being of kids.

The Y is all about more. The more support, guidance and opportunities we give kids…the more amazing qualities they’ll get out. The more they get out, the more they can achieve growing up. That’s why we provide kids a healthy, caring environment of fun, learning and belonging to help them reach their fullest potential.

And that’s why we celebrate Healthy Kids Day, our biggest day of the year devoted to kids and MORE!

Our YMCA website is www.gmvymca.org.
