Hi everyone, I'm Walker Routt! This summer at YMCA Camp High Harbor at Lake Allatoona will be my fourth summer! I'm a 14 year old that will be in the ALC program this summer. Outside of camp I love to attend mission projects and volunteer in general. I also love basketball with a passion in fact I was elected a captain for my middle school basketball team and I also started 8/10 games! Camp to put in words is just incredible. From playing games to worshipping, camp is just so much fun! Every time I leave I'm a mess and trust me you'll never see a uglier crier. That's just all because camp is just my home away from home and a place where I feel welcomed and I can just be myself.
Each day, the Y works to ensure our community has the support it needs to be its best. I’m proud to be a Y Champion to help give all kids, teens, and families access and opportunity to be a part of the Y – regardless of ability to pay. I am asking you to join me in my efforts to give all people in our community a chance to reach their full potential at the Y.
The Y has worked to ensure local kids and teens have the help they need to prepare for kindergarten, stay on-track in school, grow as leaders, and learn how to contribute to a stronger community. Through wellness and hunger relief programs, the Y helps people of all ages stay active and healthy. But, the Y needs your support of the WHY IT MATTERS Annual Giving Campaign to make this possible.
100% of every dollar donated has a lasting impact on the people of metro Atlanta by ensuring the Y’s doors are open to all – regardless of financial ability.
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.
