Since our first event in 1997, the Jackie Robinson Family YMCA has awarded over $225,000 to more than 150 students in Southeastern San Diego to help them pursue their dreams of higher education. And there's more. Through the generosity of our inspired patrons, close to $2,000,000 has been dedicated to program scholarship support for kids and families living in San Diego County's most critical community. This year we will honor and celebrate Jackie Robinson, Jerry Coleman and highlight 10 graduating seniors to be awarded with the Jackie Robinson Scholarship.
