A Message from Our Directors...

For the past 3 years, the Wyckoff Family YMCA and Hackensack University Medical Center (HUMC), have been working together on many Family-focused Community Projects. Some of these projects include the Youth Biathlon, The Half Marathon and Wyckoff Day....all culminating in benefitting Wyckoff Y Cares and the Health and Wellness Quality for the residents of Northern New Jersey. Our shared vision to develop and enhance community education and initiate innovative health and wellness awareness is at the very heart of our new MISSION PARTNERSHIP journey. 

In the months to come, please don't miss the many community-based programs and features that will be coming your way that will be of interest, relevance, and of course, free of charge. They have been designed to be inviting, interactive, and engaging for all ages from Pre-school through Active Older Adults. It is with great anticipation and pride that we look forward to working collaboratively with this most prestigious and revered medical institution.
