Futures Worth Fighting For Boxing Show 2019

The 5th Annual Futures Worth Fighting for Boxing Show is Saturday, November 2nd. Doors open at 6PM. The show matches local and regional boxers in Olympic-style bouts with proceeds benefiting YMCA Youth Boxing Programs. General admission tickets are $12. Get yours today at the Ascension St. Vincent or Dunigan Family YMCAs. Futures Worth Fighting for is sponsored by many generous businesses in the Tri-State. Please share and show them some love!


The YMCA uses boxing as a way to minister to youth in our community through character development, mentoring, and Bible study through programs like our YMCA Boxing Team and partnership with the juvenile court system. We provide boxing programs to help kids re-focus and stay in school. Boxing gets kids off the streets and actually gives them something healthy, safe, and productive to do, and it allows youth to decompress and channel their energy, aggression, and restlessness.

Unplug to Find Connection

The holidays are all about spending quality time with family and friends in your community, but technology and screen time can get in the way. At the Y, members like you – of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life – can set the virtual world aside to make lasting, meaningful connections in real life.
Here are a few ideas for making deeper connections this holiday season:
Try something new

Consider trying a new sport of fitness programs at your Y. A new experience can help you and your family connect with each other, meet new people and stay active!


The Y is a volunteer-led organization that benefits communities with many opportunities to make a difference. Ask the front desk about ways to give back alongside your neighbors.

Make friends

Have you thought about striking up a conversation with someone new in the lobby of your Y or after a great class but weren’t sure how to begin? Chances are,  you’re not alone. Try these conversations starters and you’ll be making connections in no time:

  • What’s your favorite holiday tradition?
  • What was your favorite volunteer experience?
  • Were you a Y kid growing up?

Fall Harvest 2019


Activities include decorating pumpkins, face painting, trick or trunk, carnival style games, concessions, and much more! Children participating are encouraged to wear their family friendly Halloween costumes (nothing too scary).

This is a members only event and preregistration is required due to capacity.

Register online, stop by the front desk at the Dunigan Family YMCA or the Ascension St. Vincent YMCA, or call 812.401.9622.
