Amazing things happen when our limits are stretched. As the Olympic Games get started, we want our members to have fun as a team and clear personal hurdles with our 6-week YMCA Olympic Challenge. Whether its swimming laps or taking a yoga class that intimidates you, we want you to be adventurous and try something new.


  • Finish 12 activities and win GOLD.
  • Finish 9 activities and win SILVER.
  • Finish 6 activities and win BRONZE.

We dare you to complete 24 activities during July 23 – August 31. You must do at least 20 minutes of activity to count. Each person that signs up will get guest passes to invite a friend. Celebrations will follow in September.
