Wrapping up week 4 and on track, but still a lot of calories left to burn... Thanks for your support!  See more
Anne Bakstad

THE STORY:

Hi friends and family,

I love my neighborhood and I love my local YMCA!   Please consider supporting one of my favorite local organizations, one which has meant so much to my family over the years.  For the next 6 weeks I will be exercising as part of the calories for a cause fundraiser.  My goal is to raise $1000+ by asking for pledges as I attempt to burn 13,000 calories!   I will also make a matching donation up to $1000. 

I have been a member of the gym for almost 15 years, and both my children have grown up in the Y.  Carina was part of Ms. Marian's wonderful dance program for years, and both Carina and Eric spent their elementary school years attending the nurturing and educational afterschool programs that the Y offers... Eric is currently in the LEAP program for 4th and 5th graders, where he is learning more independence and getting exposure to things like cooking and yoga.  I enjoy the community I have built at the Y, through volunteering, serving on advisory boards, attending family events, and exercising with a fun cast of characters (especially Annie!).

The Y is a non-profit, providing needed services for all sorts of people in our community, from babies to seniors.  Please consider supporting the Richmond District YMCA, or if you live elsewhere, check out your local Y!  It is a global organization doing good!

Thanks much!

Anne

WHAT IS "RAISING THE RICHMOND", AND HOW CAN I HELP?
Raising the Richmond is a team of the Richmond District YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign made up of facility parents, volunteers, and staff who have committed to raising funds to help support our community programs.  You can support a Raising the Richmond team member by clicking on the orange DONATE button on the upper right corner of this page.  Your donation will go straight to the Richmond District YMCA for our community programs to put to use helping people grow, improve their health, and contribute to our community.  Your donation will also show up on your team member's page as a show of support for them to reach their fundraising goal.


THE IMPACT OF YOUR GIFT
We combat social ills by supporting the very foundations of community through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.  Your gift helps us have a meaningful impact in Strengthening the Foundations of Community:

Adults who work out at our Y with our personal trainers aren't just looking better on the beach.  They are:

  • Reducing stress
  • Feeling happier
  • Building relationships
  • Having more energy for their family
  • Staying healthy

Youth who attend LEAP (Learning and Enrichment Afterschool Program) aren't just in a safe place afterschool while their parents work to provide for their family.  They are:

  • Becoming more resilient
  • Making friends and becoming a part of their community
  • Learning to give back and contribute
  • Building social and life skills that will last them a lifetime

Seniors who volunteer for our Foodbank aren’t just supplying food to individuals and families in need.  They are:

  • Staying active
  • Feeling needed and valuable
  • Staying connected to a community
  • Finding purpose

Each of these impacts are small in and of themselves, but together they strengthen the social fabric that makes this the kind of community we dream of for ourselves and our families.  Please support the Y in making this kind of impact possible today.  Click on the DONATE button on the upper right corner of this page.
