Y Kid's Tri
Founded in 2011, provides the perfect “launching pad” for youth to break into the sport of Triathlon. The swim takes place in the pool at the Downtown YMCA in Columbus, GA. The bike and run take place on closed roadways and running paths all along Columbus’ downtown streets and beautiful Riverwalk. Y Kids Tri is a non-profit organization and 100% of the proceeds are given to the YMCA of Columbus. Come out and support this great cause! Open to the Community.

The YMCA of Metropolitan Columbus, GA is a proud to partner with United Way of The Chattahoochee Valley. Through the generosity of our community we are able to offer before/after school programs for children, provide swimming lessons, youth sports, and Summer Camp. The YMCA extends a sincere thank you to the United Way of The Chattahoochee Valley and to our private donors!
We're more than a gym! The YMCA volunteered at the Columbus Botanical Gardens. Located on 22 acres of greenspace in north Columbus, the Columbus Botanical Garden offers free daily admission to visitors. We are pleased to provide an attractive venue and colorful setting for photography, special events, horticultural seminars and community learning. Thank you to those who participated in Keeping Columbus Beautiful!
