YMCA Heroes

Y Heroes is the main fundraiser for the Greater Providence YMCA. Proceeds raised from the event help us deliver our mission: to build healthy spirit, mind and body for all, through programs, services, and relationships based upon our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Our vision is to become the most valued resource for the community.

YMCA's Community Commitment

For more than 150 years, the Greater Providence YMCA has worked to meet the needs of the community. We understand that we are not alone in this important work. Together, with community partners and you, our donors, we are making a difference in the lives of thousands of Rhode Islanders. We are so very grateful for your support - we could not do it without you!

Thank you to our Sponsors!
