Thank you, Whitley County!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!  If you have seen the YMCA’s thermometer following the success of our Strong Kids Campaign, you saw that it was all the way to the top!  We not only reached our goal, but we exceeded it!  Receiving over $29,000 during a time of such great unemployment and financial struggle is unbelievable, and yet it is not so surprising.  The YMCA’s members are so dedicated and supportive of our programming, and nobody knows better than they do, the benefits received from physical workouts.  Our success goes beyond our facility walls, however.  Whitley County citizens and businesses donated generously to our fundraiser, as well.  We thank you all so very much! 

I also want to thank our members who campaigned for us this year, our Director, Erica Miller, the YMCA staff, and Board of Managers for the efforts made to keep our mission alive:

“To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.”


With gratitude,

JoEllen Rush

Strong Kids Campaign Chairman
