You make more possible.

All Corporate Challenge proceeds will benefit the Lafayette Family YMCA’s Annual Campaign. With your financial support, we'll be able to help individuals find a place to belong, a parent find a safe space for their child during after-school hours, and children learn imperative, life-saving water safety skills. We hope we can count on your support to continue the Y's community-building efforts in 2022!


Any company in the Greater Lafayette area is welcome to join us in the Corporate Challenge.

We'll place organizations into divisions based on the number of employees each one has. Some companies do a little bit of everything, while some pick just a few events and encourage their staff to participate in those. Each company pays an entry fee, which differs depending on company size, then it’s “pay as you play” for each employee in each event. Every event has a different cost.
