YMCA Fairfax County Reston is a must-visit family center in the greater Reston community just off of Sunset Hills Road. It’s a must-visit location not because of the accredited preschool and early learning center or fantastic 250 person Waterwolves swim team, but because each day the YMCA opens its doors to everyone regardless of the inability to pay. A matter of fact, the YMCA facility in Reston in the only YMCA in all of Fairfax County and this Fall marks the YMCA’s 17th year of community impact to more than 10,000 individuals who live, work and play in our community.
The YMCA Fairfax County Reston is a different non-profit charity than most because all of the dollars raised at the local YMCA are given back to real families in need in the same community the dollars where raised from for much needed programs and services. The best ways to support the local YMCA this Fall is to save the date for two significant community events: the 6th Annual YMCA Corporate Challenge, a Team Building day for small to large local businesses to experience teamwork, coworker camaraderie, and networking all while participating in a day full of team-building challenges; and the Annual YMCA Fundraising Gala on November 18th where more than 300 community individuals and leaders will gather to raise awareness and dollars for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility programs the YMCA offers every day. This year, the YMCA Fairfax County Reston hopes to raise over $350,000 to support local families in affordable childcare, preschool education and swim lessons. Last year in 2016, the YMCA gave more than 1,600 individual financial scholarships to families in Vienna, Reston, Herndon, Great Falls and the surrounding communities.
