The Y Challenger program for children and young adults with special needs shines as an example of how participating in healthy activities can result in not only improved physical fitness but also personal growth, fun and friendships. Individuals 4-30 years of age with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive through recreational and social opportunities.




Help make wonderful memories possible by attending the 9th Annual Cheers for Challenger event. Join us for wine and beer, food and a live band in a unique venue that includes access to a beautiful outdoor terrace with a waterfall. There will be a live and silent auction to benefit the YMCA Challenger program for young people with physical, developmental and intellectual disabilities.
