Each Day at the Y, families are coming together to get healthy, Children are engaging in physical activities, learning social skills and building self-confidence, parents are enjoying working out on the latest cardio equipment and participating in group fitness classes while knowing their children are in a safe, nurturing environment… families are getting closer and living better so they can learn grow and thrive.
However, some families don’t have that opportunity. Each year , Y members and volunteers are constantly giving their time and money to help Change the Odds for a child, single mother, a family enduring financial hardship, or an isolated older adult. Each person’s story is different, but essentially they all tell us the same thing: The YMCA changed my life.
