How did this project come about?

The YMCA partnered with Urban Soccer Park to create an outdoor space for the community to enjoy sports and other activities. We at K21 were able to play a huge role in this project, granting the YMCA nearly $420,000 to make it happen.

The CEO of YMCA, Jim Swanson, expressed his appreciation, saying, “With K21’s financial assistance, we have been able to bring to life important and impactful programs, such as the new downtown-Warsaw YMCA facility and these urban fields. K21’s unwavering support of our mission has truly made a big difference, allowing us to provide countless individuals with the resources and opportunities they need to thrive.”

The K21 Health Foundation’s mission aligns perfectly with the YMCA’s goal of empowering individuals to lead active and healthy lifestyles. K21 President and CEO Rich Haddad emphasized the significance of this partnership, stating, “Partnering with the YMCA is one way to achieving our mission of providing opportunities and resources for our community to be physically active. We’ve had a long and positive relationship with the YMCA, and we’re always pleased to see our collaborations impacting the community to such a great extent. We look forward to future opportunities to improve the health of our community with organizations like the YMCA.”

Ready, get set, go!

So, Kosciusko County, get ready to embrace an active lifestyle in the beautiful outdoors. The Kosciusko Community YMCA and its partners are committed to creating an inclusive and vibrant community, and these urban soccer fields are just the beginning. See you on the fields!
