2023 Event Recap:
Rock Your Style

Fun is always in fashion as we celebrate and support youth and young adults with disabilities. On April 22, 2023, we honored 15 years of the Challenge Your Fashion event’s support and dedication to the YMCA Challenger program and accessible fields. 

Founded in 2006, the YMCA Challenger Program continues to make sure the opportunity to play sports, learn new skills, grow confidence and build friendships is always in style for everyone - the trend, not the fad!

Funds raised will help provide sports, recreational program, social activities and accessible fields to youth with disabilities.
