Fun City Sliders set to return to Lethbridge
1000ft outdoor waterslide hosted by the YMCA
Fun City Sliders is scheduled to occur on July 22nd. This year’s event will be hosted by the YMCA, with charitable proceeds to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.
This full day event will provide up to $15,000 to the YMCA of Lethbridge’s Strong Kids Campaign, which allows underserved children and families in Lethbridge to receive support to participate in YMCA membership, programming and day camps.
“We believe that every individual should have the opportunity to participate in YMCA programming, regardless of financial barriers”, says Sydney Wakaruk, YMCA Special Events Coordinator. “Fun City Sliders strategically aligns with our core values, providing a day where youth and families can be brought together in our community. Becoming the hosts of this event has been exciting news for the YMCA, and we are looking forward to having the support of Lethbridge behind us as we host another great event.”
Last year, more than 1700 people took part in the day’s events, which will also include vendors, on site entertainment and food trucks. A limited number of single, triple and all day ride passes can be purchased starting on May 15th at www.funcitysliders.com.
To successfully run this event, the YMCA of Lethbridge will need 150 volunteers over the age of 16. Volunteers will receive free slide passes to be used that day.
