Northfield Rotary and Northfield YMCA Community Match Campaign

May 27, 2014


Northfield Rotary and the Northfield Area Family YMCA have entered into a partnership in an effort to raise additional funds for the Y’s new building being constructed in Northfield.

Rotary has pledged to contribute $1 for every $2 raised between May 22 and June 30th. Rotary’s contribution will be limited to $25K.

The new facility and its programs will be available to EVERYONE in the Northfield community and surrounding area through Y member and community member participation, with financial assistance provided to those who need support.

· a wellness floor (cardio/weight equipment and fitness studio to support good health, illness prevention and injury recovery)
· full-size regulation high school size gymnasium
· Large indoor walking track
