About Us

The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.

We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause.  At the Y, no one is turned away for an inability to pay.

The YMCA of Southwestern Indiana is volunteer founded and volunteer led. From our earliest beginnings, the Y has been responding to the needs of our community and addressing those needs. From our board of directors to our Team 13 volunteers, the YMCA relies on the generosity of our volunteers to truly make a difference.

The Evansville Half Marathon was founded in order to bring a first rate racing event to the community – promoting health and well-being for all while generating funds to further our mission. All proceeds from this event go back into our local community to help the YMCA impact the lives of children and families by providing after school care, character development and teen leadership opportunities and much more.
