On October 14th

Our Chuck-A-Puck event is a fun way to engage with our members while raising funds for our Y's Community Support Campaign, which supports membership scholarships and program assistance for our neighbors. Pucks are a donation of $20 and will go on sale at our member services desk starting on Monday, October 11th. For a $40 donation, you will receive 3 pucks!

During the day of the event, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., puck holders can chuck their puck in person from the second story track onto the gym floor beneath, or have a local celebrity chuck them for you on Facebook Live if you do not feel like coming in to do so yourself!

Get Your Pucks Here!


  • Register for the event online, in person at our member services desk, or by calling us at 218-241-8008. Remember if you are donating online, to donate in increments of $20 so that we know how many pucks to reserve for you! 
  • Stop in to the EWC between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on October 14th to receive your pucks from the member services desk. If you would like someone to chuck your puck for you, just let us know and we can have a Y staff member or local hockey celebrity toss your puck for you. 
  • Chuck your puck! Take your pucks to the second-floor track in our building and toss them down to the gym floor for a chance at many great prizes. 
  • Follow along on our Facebook page where we will be going live throughout the day at 8 a.m, Noon, 4 p.m, and 8 p.m. to showcase our celebrity chuckers! You'll also have a chance to hear from some of our YMCA Directors to learn a little more about what donations go towards in their respective departments. Follow us at  
  • Come back to pick up your prizes! During our last Facebook live of the night, we will announce our grand prize winners and will be in contact with all of our winners on October 12th. 
  • Live out of the area but want to participate? Register for the event, donate any amount you would like, and let us know that you would like your puck chucked for you!
