Big News to announce, we will be holding our Better Us Shoot/Serve/Swing -a-thon at halftime of our games. Here is a quick explanation of what the Shoot-a-thon consists of. At half time of your game we will be asking your coaches to come out and participate.
Volleyball Coaches will get 1 min to serve as many balls over the nets as possible
Soccer Coaches will get 1 min to make as many shots from 10 yards away
Baseball Coaches will get 1 min to hit as many balls as possible into the outfield
Basketball Coaches will get 1 min to make as many free throws as possible
At the end of the minute we will tally up how many serves/goals/hitts that were made and collect the pledges from the fans. Example: A fan pledges $5.00 per free throw that Coach Smith makes. Coach Smith makes 10 free throws and therefore the fan pledges $50 to the Better Us Campaign.
You are also able to to donate a flat ammount if you would like:
100% of all donations goes back into this community trough
scholarships and community programs
• 2,652 people from the Pearland area received a scholarship for a
YMCA membership or program.
• 100% of board members and 75% of staff donate to the Better
Us Campaign - raising a total of $48,235.
• $21 a month makes 5 children safer around water through our
lifesaving swim lessons.
• $13 a month will provide two children a week of summer fun and
education at Day Camp.
100% of the proceeds go directly to the Better US Campaign which is dedicated to making sure the YMCA does not turn anyone away due to the inability to pay. The financial assistant fund is the YMCA’s way of giving back to the community by giving financial aid to families that want to enjoy our programs but might not be able to afford them.
We thank you for your support!
