On November 5, 2014, Pepsico Canada Foundation was honoured for their support of the YMCA of Greater Toronto and our youth programs with a formal dedication of the gymnasium at the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Mississauga Burnamthorpe Rd. YMCA.
Reaching $1M in philanthropic support, Pepsico Canada Foundation has supported our commitment to the health and well-being of youth in our communities for more than a decade. The Foundation and the YMCA have a shared commitment: to give youth opportunities to get them engaged in healthy lifestyle choices, including access to physical activity and spaces that welcome them to participate without barriers. They have been instrumental in helping us build capacity so we can reach even more young people now, and in the future. In fact, they were the first supporter of YMCA Teen Nights, our free access program which gives teens somewhere safe to stay active and spend their weekend nights.
At the YMCA of Greater Toronto, we believe that if you give youth the opportunities they need for a strong start, they have the chance at a great future. By supporting the Y, PepsiCo Canada Foundation is helping make this possible. Thank you.
