Free Military YMCA Memberships Extended until March 2015
Military families using fitness centers and respite day care through the Armed Services YMCA will be able to continue their memberships until March 2015. The Defense Department and Armed Services YMCA contract was set to expire, but has been extended until March 17, 2015.
The popular program originally started to give families of deployed National Guard and Reserve Components the opportunity to join a local YMCA free for fitness activities, recreation, and child care. The program was later extended to active duty families located far away from a military installation. The funding for the program was paid for through Overseas Contingency Operations funds, which means as the war draw down, those funds also decrease.
Check with your local YMCA to see if you eligible to participate in the Military Outreach Initiative program.
