I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the YMCA of Greater Houston. As a member with the the Y, I have seen first-hand how the organization is making a difference in the lives of youth and families in our community. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, my life changed and I needed a place to come to. The YMCA provided the support for me to grow stronger physically, mentally and spiritually. It is a place that I can come and be part of a community and be encouraged and uplifted!
At the Y, they 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.
Your support to our cause makes a true impact, allowing us to help those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford to participate in Y programs. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and neighbors.
Please consider making a gift today and support our efforts to strengthen our community through the YMCA.
