Haselwood Family YMCA

Unlike many who begin their journey at the Y, Susan was not in need of starting over physically. She was in good shape, and happy at her current fitness facility. She only joined the Y to help her sister stay accountable, but after joining she never went back to her old gym.

“The whole atmosphere is what keeps me coming back,” said Susan. “It’s the people, the staff, the other members, that are so encouraging to me.”

What surprised Susan most about the Y were the services provided that seemed outside the normal scope of a gym.

"The Y has been really beneficial to a lot of people in this area," said Susan. "It has something for everyone no matter age, capability. ... And it's the Y's willingness to help anyone and everyone."

Witnessing the Y’s dedicated work in the community inspired Susan to volunteer to help raise money for the Y’s Annual Campaign.

“The Y makes me feel good,” said Susan. “It fills a need for the entire family and provides a place for anyone and everyone.”
