MYC/JAG Relay for Life Team!

The JAG Youth Council decided that they wanted to participate in Milford’s Relay for Life on May 12th to honor cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against a disease that has already taken too much.

Shout out to one of our Relay for Life participants, EarlWilson! He has already raised $160 for our team that will go to the American Cancer Society. Great job, Earl!!

CrossFit Continues at the MYC!

The frist three classes of CrossFit at the MYC have been a huge hit! We are so excited to continue the program into the month of May!  Marc Pitts from CrossFit Never Doubt will be coming every Monday until May 15th. The program will start at 3:30. Space is limited to 12 participants per class, so get here fast on Mondays. There will be no “in advance” sign up. Sign-ups will occur the day of the program. The program is free and you must be an after-school member to participate. To register you will need to be a Milford resident or attend Milford schools and be between the ages of 8 and 18.
THANK YOU to Milford Regional Hospital for running this program. We are so happy to be collaborating with a partner in our community that is an advocate for the health of our youth. CrossFit is the first of many programs the hospital plans to run at the Milford Youth Center. Click here for video of the kids using the agility ladder!

THANK YOU Benjamin Moore & Co.!

IMG_3194On behalf of the Milford Youth Commission and MYC staff, we would like to thank Benjamin Moore & Co. of Milford, and specifically Scott Kaplan, Distribution Center Manager, for organizing a volunteer project in the basement of the Youth Center! Employees of Benjamin Moore came on multiple days over the last few months to paint the entire floor and ceiling of the basement! In addition they painted our boxing room, painting all the polls “foul-line yellow” and put up a replica wall of the “Green Monster” adjacent to our batting cages! Benjamin Moore stored the wall for us during the renovation and we are so excited to have it finally up! The wall was actually used in a commercial in NY! This project, valued at over $15,000 of materials and labor has transformed the basement, allowing it to be available in time for batting cage rentals, CrossFit and so much more! It will also help with the general maintenance of the building! It’s due to the generosity of local businesses and individuals that we are able to continue to offer free after school programming, an affordable summer camp, and provide a safe and fun environment for the youth of Milford!

MYC Volunteer Runner-Up to United Way of Tri-County’s “Volunteer of the Year”!

Ron UWTCThe Youth Center staff attended the annual “United Way Recognition Breakfast” at the Sheraton Hotel in Framingham. We were so pleased to help congratulate Ron Taylor, who was recognized as the United Way of Tri-County‘s “Volunteer of the Year” Finalist! Ron is an active volunteer here at the MYC, and you can find him in the building on most days: doing a project, helping out with the kids, or giving the staff some wisdom of the ages. He will be facilitating our new woodworking program in May as well. We look forward to this breakfast every year and give thanks to all that the United Way of Tri-County does for communities within the MetroWest/495 Corridor!
