I have accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the YMCA of Greater Houston. As a life long volunteer with the the Y and now as our current Executive Director, I have seen first-hand how the organization is making a difference in the lives of youth and families in our community.
At the Y, we impact thousands of lives every year through the programs we offer in the areas of eliminating drowning, improving academic performance, eliminating chronic disease and childhood obesity and creating opportunities for social equity. We strive to offer to members of our community an environment that fosters personal growth, leadership skills and healthy relationships.
The M.D. Anderson YMCA holds a special place in my heart because it helped shape me to become the man I am today. I participated in swim lessons, summer camps, and teen programs and many times I would not have been able to do this if not for a scholarship. Your contribution to our 2019 Better Us campain would help our next generation experience all of the good that the Y can do for them.
Please consider making a gift today and support our efforts to strengthen our community through the YMCA.
