This video is a part of the YMCA's celebration of 140 years of accomplishment in its mission to "challenge and nurture the mind and spirit of individuals and communities to develop and practice ethical principles and responsible leadership for social justice and the integrity of our natural world."
As part of this celebration, we are privileged to gather and archive your stories as an important part of our history. We would love to hear your Y story, because we believe that the power of storytelling is when people say "me too."
