The Y in Central Maryland Blog

Monday Mission Update

Many of you will remember that we recently announced the launch of Y on the Fly, an innovative nutrition and exercise program sponsored by our friends at McCormick “Flavor For Life” and PNC Bank. Y on the Fly brings fun, engaging healthy living activities and nutrition to Baltimore City youth via a mobile, interactive program which travels to various sites throughout the city all summer long.

Over the summer, the Y on the Fly mobile van will reach approximately 1,500 children and youth with coordinated stops at 40 locations (or more) throughout Baltimore City, including Enoch Pratt and Weinberg Foundation libraries, schools, churches, Y family centers, Y Head Start sites and other community organizations.

In the five weeks since the June 15th launch and we’ve already stopped at 34 locations and reached 1,184 children and youth, so it looks like in true Y fashion we’ll exceed our already significant goals.  From what is abundantly evident from the photos below, the fun and good health are in full swing! Take a look!

Many thanks once again to our partners at McCormick and PNC as well as the many Y associates who are leading the charge!

All the best,
