Dancing for a Cause
Each year community “Stars” are nominated to put on their dancing shoes and perform a dance routine alongside a professional dancer. As part of their nomination the “Stars” also help raise money that benefits the YMCA. Each dancer has a campaign page where you can learn more about their Dance for a Cause and help them to raise money for the YMCA. Thank you for your help and supporting the YMCA!
My Why for the Y
I grew up going to the Goldsboro, NC YMCA. For me and the area I grew up, the YMCA was one of the few places that provided the unique opportunity for people of all walks of life, age, background, and income to go to the same place and play basketball, or swim, play racquetball, lift weights, and numerous other activities. The YMCA was the intersection and the common thread for people who on the surface may have seemed very different but once we walked in the doors we quickly realized that we had more in common than we thought. Because of this it began to shape my perspective from a very early age that the world can seem very different and very big, but when you continually meet new people and put yourself in different situations the world is not all that frightening, and strangers aren’t all that strange anymore. This really was one of the unique opportunities the YMCA afforded to me growing up.
Another was that it really was one of the places, for me being interested in so many different sports and always wanting to be active, it was a central point where I could play 1, 3, or a dozen different sports in the same building without having to make a huge investment in a bunch of different equipment or bouncing from one spot to another. The YMCA helps to level the playing field for kids that otherwise may not have a lot of resources available to them, and it’s a place for people of all ages to experience new activities and meet new people that can enrich their lives.
The great thing is that my Why is unique to me and the YMCA has been providing unique opportunities for millions of people for many years. The YMCA has a proven track record of being incredibly beneficial to our society and my goal is to make as great of an impact as possible going forward because I really do believe in the purpose of the YMCA and I have experienced it firsthand.
