The Rock River YMCA has laid out its goal for 2018 with hopes of raising $1.3 million.
Leaders with the YMCA say the campaign aims to bring awareness to the impact they have on youth development and healthy living in the area.
At a campaign kickoff held Wednesday, Kasim Burton, a Guilford High School student, thanked the YMCA for the effect it's had on his live.
"When I go to college in the summer, I plan on going back and volunteering still and maybe even getting a job after graduation," Kasim Burton said.
The YMCA says they have raised close to $480,000 dollars this year.
