    My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2011. The Y has provided our family the opportunity to stay positive throughout. It’s a place we can do things as a family, get a much needed break (kids night out), and support our kids that participate in sports programs. Thank you YMCA.

    I have enjoyed the free program my Y is offering this summer. My family is getting out more & having fun. I enjoy Stacie Welch, she is the best trainer.

    My husband and I are foster parents, he’s currently on medical leave from work recuperating from spine surgery and I’m trying to keep the kids occupied and having a fun summer. But sometimes I just need some “me” time! So I go to my Y and get in a great workout so I can do a good job as mom, wife, nurse, landscaper, chauffeur, maid, chef, and activities coordinator. Without the Y I would be wiped out!

    The YMCA has been a blessing to my 5 year old son and I. The time we spend together at the Y is priceless and we have built a lot of memories from his swimming lessons at 2 years old to his martial arts classes now . We have both learned how to swim thanks to the Y, I participate in exercise programs while he enjoys his martial arts class and afterwards we get refreshed in the pool especially during this hot summer! As a working mom it has helped me relieve a lot of stress and strengthened the relationship with my son. We <3 the YMCA!

    My mother only speaks Spanish and she was visiting me in August and felt how in Colombia, its native country, even though the majority of the teachers speak english, she felt as in its house and in classes as Yoga with Nicole, it made be understood as out and that made us feel very good to my mother and to me.

    Mi madre solo habla español y estuvo visitándome en Agosto y se sintió como en Colombia, su país natal, apesar de que la mayoría de los profesores hablan ingles, se sintió como en su casa y en clases como Yoga con Nicole, ella se hacia entender como fuera y eso nos hizo sentir muy bien a mi madre y a mi.
