The Big Heat

We are very excited to announce that we are partnering with Blessing Hospital for the Big Heat event this year at the Adams County Fair! This partnership will allow us to expand this extreme obstacle course for children and adults to include a longer course for adults, new and challenging obstacles and of course MORE MUD! Blessing and the Quincy Family YMCA are committed to strengthening our communities by investing in the youth, individuals, and families, of our communities providing resources to be active, healthy and engaged. We hope that you will join us on July 30 for a bigger and better Big Heat!
