STAND FOR SOMETHING

Dr. King’s dream was to create a nation where people were judged not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. The YMCA of South Florida has been working hard to incorporate these dreams into our communities. For the past 18 years, we have been honoring his legacy with our Inspirational Weekend, which includes a Breakfast in Broward County; Luncheon in Miami-Dade County and Day of Service across the counties we serve. Through the activities of this weekend, we remember Dr. King by bringing our community together in celebration and service to others. 

Each year, the Inspirational Breakfast and Luncheon bring close to a thousand members of the business and civic community together to honor Dr. King’s legacy. These events support our “I Have a Dream” Youth Scholarship Fund. From preschool to college, the Y believes all youth deserve the ability to reach their full potential. We invite you to join us, STAND FOR SOMETHING and help support us in strengthening our communities.

We graciously appreciate the community continued support of this important and engaging event. Due to the challenges of in person gatherings we will be making efforts to meet safely and adopt social distance protocols when able.
