Calgary AB – A $3.5-million investment in YMCA Calgary by Shane Homes means the new City of Calgary-built recreation facility currently under construction in Calgary’s northwest is getting a new name. As announced at a naming celebration event earlier today, the new facility will be called the Shane Homes YMCA in recognition of Shane Homes’ investment in wellness. One of two new City-owned, YMCA-operated facilities currently under construction, the Shane Homes YMCA will provide opportunities for recreation, leisure and learning through aquatics, fitness and sports facilities, arts learning and performance spaces as well as multipurpose areas, a licensed childcare and a Calgary Public Library.
 
“We are tremendously happy to partner with Shane Homes to bring this transformational gift to life in service of Calgarians, particularly in the northwest, “ says Shannon Doram, President and CEO of YMCA Calgary. “The Shane Homes team has really stepped up to help YMCA to ensure more Calgarians belong, grow, thrive and lead in this amazing new facility.
