Providing opportunties for families to exercise, workout and have fun together...that is how we help our kids learn healthy habits, engage with kids of all ages and start to overcome the epididemic of childhood obesity.  The Y is about youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.  When families participate at the Y in programs designed for them...the youth in our community have a brighter future.
