When I first joined the Langham Creek YMCA board a few years ago- I knew the Y did good work in the community and I wanted to give back. Fast forward to today and I could never have dreamed what a difference the Y has made in shaping our everyday life! It has brought our family closer as we volunteer together for our Miracle League team, Orbit's Astros. We have the same group of players from season to season, and our kids have enlisted their friends and their parents to be buddies for our team. There are several families who have become coaches for their own teams! The blessings we count as a result of our involvement with the YMCA Adaptive Sports programs include Caitlin and Chandler both serving as VP of the SPARKS club at school which plans social events for special needs students so they can have an authentic high school experience; Chris was also named one of the first Adaptive Coach of the Year for his work coaching a variety of Adaptive Sports, including baseball, basketball, flag football- he even gets invited to birthday parties and drum recitals; and I have served as our Team Mom/head cheerleader and was able to expand my circle of friends to include the Peep Squad and vastly improved my "Chicken Dance" routine!!
This is just what I'm most passionate about, but there is SO much more to our Y! For Healthy Living, For Youth Development, and For Social Responsibility- the Langham Creek YMCA....it's more than a gym, it's a cause! Thank you so much for supporting our Annual Campaign- all of the money we raise stays at our facility, and together we can make a difference in our community!!
