There are a handful of events we host at the Y every year.

These include our annual fundraising gala, the Sneaker Ball in April, the Otter Romp Youth Triathlon in June, and our Fall Foliage Trail Races in October. These events are an important part of our fundraising efforts, helping to fund our Membership for All program which provides financial assistance to those who need it for YMCA membership, program participation, and critical services like childcare.

Sneaker Ball


Sneaker Ball is the Keene Family YMCA’s signature fundraiser, taking place in April each year. Funds raised support the Y’s Membership for All fund, providing financial assistance to those who need it for membership or program participation, and helping us ensure that everyone has access to YMCA programs and services.
