Friend and family get-togethers, traveling, shopping, cooking — the holiday season is often met with a mix of joy and stress — hopefully more of the former. Are you worried about sticking to your wellness plan during the upcoming weeks? No worries, we’ve got some quick tips to help you stay healthy over the holiday.
And…there’s never been a better time to join the Y! Start off the New Year by joining by January 9, and pay only an $18 join fee – a savings up to $100! Learn more about memberships and get started here.
Each year we find ourselves reflecting upon what we’ve done and where we’ve found meaning in our lives. At the Y, we don’t just make a difference every few months, we make a difference every day of the year. The donations we receive create meaningful memories and build stronger relationships in our communities for those who may not be able to afford these experiences otherwise.
Each year we’re able to explain through numbers the impact of our Annual Campaign, but the truth is, our numbers only tell part of the story. Numbers will never be able to convey that amazing feeling of making your first soccer goal with the Y in youth sports or winning a battle you never thought you’d be able to overcome. Numbers can't convey the confidence found in swimming across the shallow end of the pool for the first time or knowing that your child is safe and having fun at a Y in a before or after-school program.
But numbers do matter. When you make a gift to the YMCA of Greater Cleveland, your gift will help young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives and strengthen the bonds of community in our region. Please consider making a gift to the Y during this season of giving. Join us and make a difference in someone’s life today because no matter where you come from and no matter what the need, every gift matters.
