I love my job and I love my kids that I am raising money for. Y It Matters money will go directly to my Adaptive Programs which provide access to swimmers with cognitive and/or physical impairments. We have a program that provides services to local schools like Hirsch Academy the Ellis School. We have many adaptive private lessons that we fund and provide services to as well.
We also have a Special Olympics Swim Team which includes athletes. This team practices 9 months out of the year; we provide workouts but mostly focus on providing a team atmosphere to help foster a sense of community for the athletes. We are competing at Emory University in the Special Olympics Summer Games in May.
So we in the Adaptive aquatics department make a huge impact in our local community -- every day. I'm proud to be a Y Champion to ensure more local kids, teens, adults, and families have access to and an opportunity to be a part of the Y. I am asking you to support me in my efforts to help give ALL people the opportunity to reach their full potential through these aquatics programs.
Please join me and support the Y by making a donation today. Your gift will truly make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need the Y most.
We are more alike than we are different!
