The Greater Wichita YMCA is committed to healthy living and empowering our community through education and information - as much as our better-known branch locations and youth sports. Each year, thousands of our neighbors - including members and community participants - participate in our health and wellness programs and initiatives that are designed for kids, adults, and seniors - for those pursuing fitness goals and those managing diseases. We work with corporate partners on employee wellness, established community partners on education and support programs, and individual partners on personal health.
