The YMCA has helped me go through my second cancer episode (chemo) with confidence and feeling healthy! LIVESTRONG at the YMCA and STAYSTRONG are the two experiences I’ll never forget. The coaches are simply amazing!
The Y has given my children opportunities to develop life-long skills as well as given them the opportunity to learn and socialize at a young age.
As an octogenarian, the Y keeps me active, healthy, and socially involved.
The dynamics of the Y and its integration into the community is an outstanding example of what can be done locally to help improve people’s lives.
I love that the Y has a place for my child to go while I can work out. We also love the fitness classes for both kids and adults!

I just want to say how IMPRESSED I have been with his [swim] teachers! I’m shocked how much progress [my child] has made in such a short period of time. You guys are really something special.
