It is with great sadness that the YMCA of Lethbridge has learned of the passing of Cor Van Raay on July 29th, 2021. 

Cor was an active participant in the YMCA community for many years as a member and as a significant donor. In 2017 he made the largest ever financial contribution to the YMCA of Lethbridge, resulting in the naming of our new, world-class facility as the Cor Van Raay YMCA.

His generosity has left an incredible legacy and the opportunity for thousands of people in the Lethbridge community to access affordable wellness programs, services and facilities. As a member, Cor always delighted staff with his infectious smile and warm nature. His passing weighs heavily on all of us in the YMCA community.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Employees and Volunteers of the YMCA of Lethbridge, we extend our deepest, heartfelt condolences to the Van Raay family and those who have also been touched by his spirit and kindness.

Vivien Kossuth,

Chair, Board of Directors
YMCA of Lethbridge

Warm summer weather makes people across Alberta think about staying cool, visiting swimming pools or natural bodies of water across the province to get wet and beat the heat. Unfortunately, that also means that every year we see a spike in drowning incidents. 

National Drowning Prevention Week provides a focus around delivering public training events, and otherwise promote drowning prevention messages and events.

Developed in 2001 by a team of child care experts at the YMCA of Greater Toronto, our YMCA Playing to Learn curriculum prepares children ages 0-6 for school and life-long achievement by nurturing their curiosity and development in the most natural way possible…through play!

An integral part of all licensed YMCA early learning child care across Canada since 2007, YMCA Playing to Learn aligns with all provincial early learning frameworks adopted to date and is based on research and evidence that shows play is the most effective way that children learn and gain new skills.
