Colonel Glenn Highway Health and Wellness Project
Wright State University, the YMCA, Premier Health, and the local community are seeking funding for the construction of a new health and wellness focused YMCA facility on Colonel Glenn Highway on Wright State's campus. The new facility will harness existing community partnerships to construct a new YMCA facility that includes gyms, fitness room, pool, playing fields, etc. This project will replace a nearly 80 year old facility to better serve Wright State and adjacent communities.
The Colonel Glenn Highway Development project is an opportunity to leverage public and private funds to serve the community around Wright State University. The existing YMCA facility located in Fairborn was built in 1947. In order to continue serving the community, a new facility is needed. The project will support healthy lifestyles through the addition of Premier Health medical services and a full-service YMCA. Other programming will include unique educational opportunities, services that address economic disparities, enhanced job training, and financial literacy.

The proposed project will be larger in scope compared to the existing facility. The partnerships within this project will lead to increased programming within the new facility, necessitating an increase in current employees.
