“I have been a part of the Brainerd YMCA since I was a child, including attending daycare/pre-school and participating on the Dolphin Swim Team. Being a member on the board has given me the opportunity to contribute back to the organization that was instrumental in shaping part of who I am today. I believe strongly in the YMCA core values. The YMCA is an integral part of our community and provides not just a fitness center, but valuable opportunities for families and individuals to create bonds and form healthy lifestyle habits that will stay with them for life. Not only have I formed friendships with other members of the Y community, but I have had the pleasure of watching my kid’s develop lasting friendships and positive experiences. I hope to inspire my children to contribute back to their communities in the future.”
