Member Miles

MEMBER MILES

Twice a year Meadowlands YMCA members and staff go the extra mile to support their community. We bike, walk, run, or step to raise money which helps fund one of our community service projects/programs. 

In March of 2021 our team of staff and members completed over 900 miles and raised $3,330! These funds supported our food program, which has distributed 5.8 MILLION pounds of food to 78,000+ families in our community.

This September we are asking our staff and members to join us once again. This time to raise funds for a new initiative - State of Mind. This new program is a series of talks, seminars, and information sessions to promote and normalize the mental health conversation. Our first seminar will be TALK SAVES LIVES on September 30th in partnership with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. You can find more information on this seminar here.

Ways to Support Member Miles

There are two ways you can be a part of our Member Miles:

1. Join - You can ride, run, walk, or step as many miles as you can throughout September on any of the cardio equipment within the facility.  After every workout post a photo of your mileage with the hashtag #ymcamembermiles so we can all track our progress, motivate each other, and win some prizes!

2. Donate - Motivate our participants by donating to the cause. You can donate by visiting the front desk, calling 201-955-5300 or through Venmo search for @meadowlandsymca. Note member miles with your contribution and if you are supporting a specific participant mention them so we can give them kudos on the our leader board!
