Come REDISCOVER YOUR Y, as we celebrate the past, present, and future of serving the West Cook YMCA communities with programs that address critical health and wellness challenges through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. For 115 years, generations of youth have become thriving adults with guidance from the West Cook YMCA, and adults have enjoyed healthier, more fulfilling lives.

Be a part of the continuing legacy as we come together to celebrate the past and raise support for community-based programs that will help every individual become their best self. This year’s event offers a unique perspective as Kevin Washington, President and CEO of YMCA of the USA will share how the Y as a movement is addressing critical social issues across the nation and how the West Cook YMCA is an active part of that solution right here in our community.
