Welcome to the

Niles-Buchanan YMCA

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

You probably already know about the 31st annual Niles-Buchanan YMCA Thanksgiving Day Run on Thursday November 22nd. BUT did you know that this event is expected to raise $25,000 in funds to support Y scholarships? This money ensures that everyone who needs the Y has the opportunity join. We strive to make every effort to guarantee no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. However, money is not the only way you can help. We are searching for special individuals who'd be willing to volunteer a few hours of their time to help others.

At least 150 volunteers are needed to make our Niles-Buchanan YMCA Thanksgiving Day Run happen. We offer many choices with assignments ranging from:

  • helping with registration

  • assisting with set up

  • handing out food and water

  • taking pictures

  • and much much more!

So come by yourself or grab a couple friends and call Doris or Andre at the Y (@ 269.683.1552) about doing good before doing your Thanksgiving Dinner. Come join a local tradition by volunteering a few hours and helping raise $25,000 for the Y and local families.
