I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the YMCA of Greater Houston.
As a Youth Sports Director with the Y, 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, reducing 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 such as Youth Sports. 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 Y.
My personal goal is $4,000 to support Youth Sports participation at Trotter Family YMCA, however with your help we can surpass this number to make an even greater impact.
Thank you in advance for your contribution and I look forward to seeing you soon.
