Kimberley H.

Haselwood Family YMCA

Kim had always been a walker. She played softball growing up; loved exercise and athletics. But injury had zapped away her active lifestyle.

"I was always active," she says. "It just felt weird to not be."

Kimberly moved here from San Diego in April 2011. She had avoided having surgery for as long as she could, but it was becoming increasingly clear that she could no longer go without it.

She had experiences with the YMCA in other areas but she credits the Haselwood YMCA with helping her regain the confidence she needed to rebuild her spirit.

"The old Kim is back," she says. "Like I went away for while and now I'm back. I think God led me here like (recovery) was supposed to happen here."
