The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati inspires people of all ages, and families in all forms to achieve their hopes, dreams, and goals. For over 160 years, the YMCA has worked with our members and partners to strengthen Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. We make a difference by focusing on three key areas: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. By investing in our kids, our health, and our community, the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive.

Cancer is a life-changing disease that takes a tremendous physical and emotional toll on those affected. LIVESTRONG and the YMCA are partners in healing, joining forces to offer a research-based physical activity and well-being program for adults who are undergoing or have completed their cancer treatment. Last year, 65,000 Ohioans were diagnosed with cancer. For #WorldCancerDay, we want to highlight this amazing program at the Y, which provides a supportive community where individuals can connect during their treatment and beyond. #ForABetterUs

Everything the Y does is in service of making individuals and communities better. This is the second nationwide ad the Y is running to create awareness about the Y...it's called Idle Hands. Idea behind it: All kids need a safe and productive place to both release their energy and discover their potential. The Y is America’s community space—providing recreation, education, nutrition, a place to belong, camp and outdoor exploration, character development and more. What do you think?

The YMCA Nationwide Campaign is officially underway letting everyone know about the widespread impact the Y has in communities across the country...and around the globe. This first TV spot is called "Places." Some communities lack the opportunity and resources they need to thrive. While the world only pays attention to these places when they make national news headlines, the Y is on the ground every day helping people break out of a cycle of poverty with safe spaces, mentorship programs, healthy meals, education and more.
