A Family Affair

Posted on December 5, 2013

The Y has helped our family grow into the people we are today. Our family comes to the Y because people are very friendly. There is something to do here seven days a week in the fall, winter, spring and summer, and it is affordable.
We joined the B.R. Ryall YMCA about six years ago. The Y has impacted our lives in many ways as we take pride in living a healthy life and active lifestyle. Whether it is swimming, climbing, running, biking, studying or even dancing, we can do it all at the Y.

We always feel welcome at the Y. The employees know us by name and many Y members have become friends of ours as well. Life without the Y would be very different. We would be less active for sure. The Y is often times our drive and motivation to get up and workout. Without this, we would be spending more time on the couch with a bag of chips.

When we think there is nothing to do, we are often reminded that there is always something for us at the Y. Many times on winter evenings when we are done with our work/school day and we are discussing what we should do, the answer is almost always, “let’s go to the Y.”
