19th Annual Y Sweetheart Run

2015 Sweetheart Run Logo DLWe can do so much more because of you

From A to Z, we offer a variety of experiences to nurture the potential of every child and teen, improve the nation’s health and well-being and provide support to our neighbors. Throughout our community, countless people know the YMCA. But the Y is so much more than a gym. It’s a cause, dedicated to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. From exercise to education, from volleyball to volunteerism, from preschool to preventive health, the Y doesn’t just strengthen our bodies. It strengthens our community.  Our community faces new challenges that create a greater need than ever for the work we do every day. Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers and staff to make a difference.

Every gift makes a difference.  Everyone has a role to play.  Together, we can achieve so much more.

It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you and your family will be encouraged to work towards that balance – to try a new routine, make a new friend, to challenge yourself and to enjoy each other.  At the Y, we offer many programs for you and your family to develop healthy habits.
