YMCA REACH Center Renovation Updates

Construction has begun at the YMCA REACH Center at Winston Lake and operations have been suspended temporarily. We have a great partnership with Greater Community Missionary Baptist Church enabling us to continue offering our Silver Sneakers, Group Exercise, and Active Older Adults classes and events in our community and with the community built at Winston Lake. More information is available at the link below.

What happens when you give to the Y?

When you support the Y, you are positively impacting the lives of people in our community. YOUR gift could give more children the opportunity to thrive in a safe nurturing space through our youth programs, help someone be their healthiest happiest self, encourage a senior to participate and socialize in a welcoming environment, create long-lasting summer camp memories for kids, and so much more! YOUR gift makes all of this possible!

Dirty Dozen 5K and Fun Run Obstacle Mud Run

Celebrate the 6th Annual Dirty Dozen 5K Obstacle Mud Run (ages 7 to adults) and Fun Run (for all ages) on Saturday, September 14! Participants will be challenged as they run through obstacles and test their strength, agility, and stamina. Proceeds benefit people in the community, Y innovative health programs benefiting cancer survivors, and other chronic disease programs.

Community Impact

We're proud to serve the people of Northwest North Carolina. In 2023, we launched new community programs, invested in our facilities and equipment, and continued to demonstrate that the Y is a safe place for all to focus on their health — spiritually, mentally and physically. 

Teens were provided with a safe space and a free membership
Literacy students increased language & interpersonal skills
Dollars in scholarships given for membership and programs

How Can You Help?

The YMCA has a mission of helping all people reach their God-given potential in spirit, mind and body. We also strive to turn no one away due to an inability to pay a program or membership fee. Our goal is to serve as many people in the community as possible that can benefit from our services. We can’t do that without your help.

Our Mission:

"Helping all people reach their God-given

potential in spirit, mind and body."
