Christian County YMCA To Launch Public Capital Campaign For Renovations

The Christian County YMCA is working on getting a facelift. The building, which was completed in 1980 has been looking for an upgrade to its facilities in a while and the public campaign for the outreach is set to start tomorrow. Executive Director of the YMCA Bruce Blanshan says that for its over 3,000-person membership, the upgrade is long overdue. 



The total cost is going to be $1.4 million but Co-Chair Adam Vocks says that the silent campaign is going very well. 



Co-Chair Jeff Robinson says that the YMCA is an important part of the community and means a lot to him. 



Co-Chair Mary Del Valle says the goal was originally a little higher but has gotten better.  Next up will be putting in updated equipment. 



The money will be separated into different projects including renovating the athletic center, modernizing the wellness center, enhancing the family aquatic center, and revitalizing the facility structure.  Blanshan encourages everyone to help reach the YMCA’s goal.  



To donate, call 217-287-7271, fill out a pledge card, and drop it off at the YMCA, or send it through the mail. You can also find out more information about the campaign by visiting the YMCA’s website at https://www.ccymca.org/.
