Together, Stronger with the YMCA
“We are grateful to Burlington Foundation for support. These funds have allowed us to conduct outreach activities and support virtual program delivery to seniors in our community. Physical activity and social connection are fundamental to personal well-being. When our doors closed, we found new ways to connect with our community. The YMCA is committed to improving the health of our community.”
From our clients:
” I recently moved to the Burlington area right before COVID19. I didn’t know a lot of people in the area and the YMCA was the first place to reach out to me since I moved her. I was so grateful to have someone drop off an exercise program and yoga mat so I could do some daily exercise. It brought tears to my eyes to know someone cared”.
” I miss getting together with the cardiac rehabilitation group. It was so nice to have an active exercise class and social in the park with my friends and Y staff.”
” I really enjoyed the Y Gold workouts on the virtual site. While I miss my friends at the Y this has helped to keep me active.”
