Why The Corporate Cup?
The Corporate Cup is part of the YMCA's Annual Strong Kids Campaign. At the Y, they don’t just teach swimming lessons or coach soccer: they ensure that the nine million children and teens in their programs reach their full potential by helping them grow physically, mentally and socially — from young children into engaged, active members of their communities. The Strong Kids Campaign helps fund summer camps for the under-privileged, swim lessons for the physically and mentally disabled, youth scholarships, meals to low-income youth, financial assistance to those who cannot afford membership and much more.
The Rising Professionals of Beloit are proud to be a part of the Strong Kids Campaign through the Corporate Cup and help make a difference in the lives of the youth in our community!
