Hello, my name is Beth Buckholtz and I am on staff at the Sumitt Family YMCA in Newnan. I have work here for about 19 years and I would like to tell you why.
The Y is so much more than a gym. We meet people from all walks of life right where they are and help them reach their goals. We take care of kids in our after school program, so that they don't have to go home to an empty house. We teach kids to learn to swim! We have school break and summer camps for schools age kids. We help people with Parkinson's disease, arthritis and other limiting conditions grow stronger and more self sufficient.
These programs are funded with our Why it Matters Campaign. We raise money each year to come along side families to provide these wonderful opportunities. The funds are used to supplement membership dues and tuition for camps for families who cannot afford it.
THATS WHY I AM PROUD TO BE A YMCA CHAMPION!!
