Cycle for Your Community

On Monday May 1st, 2023, join us at the Cor Van Raay YMCA for our annual YMCA fundraiser of Cycle for [Y]our Community

Help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 by riding a stationary bike for pledges or supporting a current rider to reach their donation goal.

Our need for donations is more urgent than ever. The past few years have been challenging to our communities in ways not anticipated.

On May 1st, let’s ride together to give all underprivileged and at-risk children, youth, adults and seniors from our community the opportunity to register for vital YMCA offerings such as child care, day camps, aquatic lessons, recreational activities, youth leadership, senior programs, fitness classes, and more.

When: Monday May 1st, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Where: Cor Van Raay YMCA, Cavendish Farms Galleria

You have the pedal power to change lives.

Our goal is to recruit over riders and donors to collectively raise $25,000!

100% of the event proceeds support the thousands of local children, youth and families who need us the most.

You can get involved in the following ways:


    Help us raise funds through online pledges throughout month of May by sharing with others that you are pedaling to provide equal access for everyone in the Lethbridge and Southern Alberta area.

    Email [email protected] or call 403-942-5762 to join us as a rider today.


    Make a donation in support of one of our riders to help them reach their goal either before or during the event day.

    Make a donation to our annual fund development campaign. All proceeds go towards helping individuals and families in our communities have access to affordable health, fitness and wellness programs.

Thank you to all our wonderful donors from last year's event!

We wanted to take this opportunity and thank all of our amazing Cycle for [Y]our Community donors and volunteer riders who came out to support the YMCA on June 1st, 2022 we are so appreciative of all your generosity. Every dollar is life changing for someone.
Our mission is to strengthen our community by promoting healthy living, fostering belonging, connection, and inclusion, helping children, families, and seniors thrive! We believe in helping children and families thrive through our family programming, camp and child care services and family fitness memberships. We believe in promoting healthy living and make sure that no one is ever turned away from a YMCA experience due to an inability to pay.
Together we are helping youth receive health services and support as well as the leadership skills they need to gain employment, ensuring seniors develop connections in the community, and bringing families into spaces where they play and feel a sense of belonging.
Thank you for being community leaders who are stepping up to create safe and inclusive places for people and programs at the YMCA.
