Greater Scranton YMCA Announces Grand Opening of New Exergame Youth Fitness Arcade

DUNMORE, December 18, 2013 — On Monday, December 23rd, 11:00 a.m., the Greater Scranton YMCA will hold a grand opening celebration for its new Exergame Youth Fitness Arcade.

 

In fulfillment of the Y’s goals to combat childhood obesity and engage children living in Lackawanna County through a diverse offering of youth and teen programs, the Greater Scranton YMCA is confident the ExergameYouth Fitness Arcade has the potential to transform our Y and make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of pre-teens and teens living in the community.

 

The Exergame YouthFitness Arcade was made possible through a $16,000 grant from the Margaret Briggs Foundation. Those funds, coupled with private donations, allowed our Y to purchase four pieces of interactive fitness/gaming equipment including a T-wall, 3 Kick, iStep andExerBike Gs V2. (Note: The products were purchased from Exergame Fitness)

 

As the GreaterScranton YMCA turns no one away due to an inability to pay, our staff works with each and every family who comes through our doors to ensure their respective needs are met. The Exergame Youth FitnessArcade will be available for use by all youth in our building, many of whom would not have access to such equipment if it were not for the Y. We are proud to serve more than 10,000 youth annually.
