$400 Fundraising Level 

When you raise $400 as a YMCA charity runner, you will receive a YMCA t-shirt* and 20% back on your BMO Vancouver Marathon registration! 

Your fundraising efforts will help a child build confidence and develop important life skills by learning to swim.

*We will contact you for sizing.


$750 Fundraising Level 

When you raise $750, you will receive a Y-branded insulated water bottle to keep you hydrated throughout your training! 

Your fundraising efforts mean that you are giving a child the opportunity to attend a YMCA summer camp filled with outdoor experiences and memories to last a lifetime. 


$1000 Fundraising Level 

WOW! Superstar status! When you raise $1000+, you will receive a Y-branded hoodie* for some post-run warmth. 

Your efforts will ensure a vulnerable family will receive an all-inclusive YMCA membership so they can reach their full potential.      

*You will be contacted for sizing. 


YMCA Charity Runners will receive items listed at every level. That means if you raise $1000+ in donations, you will receive ALL four items.   

By raising funds for YMCA BC, you will play an important part in helping us build healthier, stronger communities where children and families can thrive.
