My name is Lily Walls and I've been involved with the YMCA for 11 years. I started out doing gymnastics, which helped me make new friends and try new things. I instantly fell in love with everything about the Y and took swim lessons, went to after care and went to summer camp every summer. The staff really helped me open up and come out of my shell. I was quiet and kept to myself, until the Y staff helped me to be more bold and confident. The Y staff has given me so many wonerful opportunities and I am forever grateful for all they do for me.
This year I was given the amazing opportunity to go on a global service trip to the Republic of Georgia. I get to go for two weeks in July to help children with water safety in pools. I have a great swimming background, therefore it's truly amazing that I get to share my knowledge and help people always stay safe.
Please help me to raise funds for this amazing opportunity.
