In the spirit of giving during the holiday season, The Cowan Foundation helped kids get active with a $50,000 donation to the YMCA through their annual Holiday Card Program. The donation will help children across Canada access healthy, active programs through their local YMCA, and is in addition to the $20,000 contribution The Cowan Foundation made to the YMCA this summer, as part of its 20th anniversary celebrations.

Approximately one in five children at the YMCA requires financial assistance to participate in health, fitness and aquatics programs. Thanks to The Cowan Foundation, kids across the country will have access to healthy, active programs and a supportive network at their local YMCA.
