Join us at YMCA Potomac Overlook as we ride together to make a difference to improve healthy living, social responsibility and youth development. This 6-hour ride supports our Caring for Community fund, which gives local residents the ability to participate in vital YMCA programs.
Help us raise $60,000 by signing up to be part of a team or making a donation. We need 29 teams, each with two riders and a captain. Riders must be 13 years or older, do not need to be YMCA members, and each rider will ride for 2 hours. Each team’s goal is to raise a minimum of $2,000 for the ride.
SHARE THE WARMTH
YMCA & WHUR-FM Annual Coat Drive

YMCA Potomac Overlook
Please help needy area kids and adults stay warm this winter. Donate new or gently used coats, jackets, hats, scarves and gloves at our annual drive. We will also be collecting new, unwrapped toys for families who may otherwise have nothing under their tree this year.
Last year, through WHUR-FM’s coat drive, we provided over 260 coats to families in DC and MD this fall. Imagine the impact you can make.

Man 2 Man Mentoring
YMCA Potomac Overlook launched an onsite mentoring program in March 2014! Designed to give middle school boys a positive role model, students will be paired with high schoolers for sessions twice a week through the end of the school year. Mentor and mentee pairs will cover:
- Academic achievement
- Life skills development
- Health and nutrition
The high school students will receive a monthly stipend and help mentees to:
- Aspire to education excellence
- Prepare for higher education and employment
- Improve academic performance
- Increase knowledge of general health practices
If you have a high school male student or middle school student who would benefit from this program, please contact our Associate Executive Director, Lucresha Murphy via email
. Look forward to more information regarding an information session to be held later this month!
