Bounce For A Cause!

(Madison, NJ) February 13, 2015- Bounce for a Cause at the Madison Area YMCA! The Madison Area YMCA’s Gymnastics Center will feature a bounce house and an obstacle course on Friday, February 27, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for children ages 5-15 to have fun while supporting the Madison Area YMCA’s Annual Campaign!

The Madison Area YMCA’s Annual Campaign raises awareness and funds for the Y’s financial assistance program that enables the participation of hundreds of children and families in Y membership, programs, wellness initiatives, services and camps at the Family Center and childcare, early childhood education and summer camps at the F.M. Kirby Children’s Center.

The Annual Campaign is one of the ways that allows the Y to provide assistance to anyone who resides or works in Madison, Chatham and Florham Park. Support is provided based on demonstrated need, with the goal that no one be turned away from membership regardless of income or background. The Annual Campaign also helps the Y broaden its reach into initiating enriching community wellness and health-enhancing programs such as LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, the Community Mental Health Initiative, the Diabetes Prevention Program and Walk with Ease, our arthritis program.

Y members and non-members are welcome to register for Bounce for a Cause at the Welcome Center: $10 per child for up to two hours of fun! Because this is a drop off event, parents’ cellphone must be on file. The limit is 60 children.

Non-members must present a state or government-issued photo ID to access the facility. Parents’ cell phone must be on file.
