Registration is Open For the 41st Annual Mistletoe Run!

A run in the cold can warm the heart! You are invited to the most wonderful run of the year! Join us for our 41st annual event on the first Saturday in December.

The Mistletoe Run, presented by Bell Davis and Pitt, is proud to be the YMCA of NWNC's largest fundraiser and proceeds benefit the children in our community by providing financial assistance and funding for youth programming like swim lessons, summer camp and more!

YMCA REACH Center Groundbreaking

Join us for a groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate the beginning of construction on the YMCA REACH Center at Winston Lake, formerly known as the Winston Lake Family YMCA. The program will begin at 11:30am on Monday, June 10, at the REACH Center located at 901 Waterworks Road in Winston-Salem.

What happens when you give to the Y?

When you support the Y, you are positively impacting the lives of families, individuals, seniors and youth in our community. YOUR gift could give more children the opportunity to thrive in a safe nurturing space through our youth programs, help someone be their healthiest happiest self, encourage a senior to participate and socialize in a welcoming environment, create long-lasting summer camp memories for kids, and so much more! YOUR gift makes all of this possible!

Community Impact

We're proud to serve the people of Northwest North Carolina. In 2023, we launched new community programs, invested in our facilities and equipment, and continued to demonstrate that the Y is a safe place for all to focus on their health — spiritually, mentally and physically. 

Teens were provided with a safe space and a free membership
