Aquatics Centre Named
Gord & Diane Peters & Family have made an extremely generous donation and have named the Aquatics Centre. The new name was unveiled in November, 2015.
The YMCA of Brandon has received very generous donations totalling nearly $50,000 from The Cerebral Palsy Association of Manitoba to support facility accessibility upgrades in the Dood Cristall Family YMCA.
In addition, an aquatic wheelchair was also donated. The wheelchair makes it possible for those with limited mobility to be taken into the pool.
The YMCA of Brandon would also like to thank Blu Kitchen & Bar for donating proceeds from their grand opening to Cerebral Palsy to support accessibility at our facility.
