My Y Story...


Kate Muscavitch is the kind of woman who lights up a room with her smile. Beyond just her smile, Kate’s dedication to the YMCA’s Gymstars Gymnastics Team makes the real impact. Kate’s daughter started with gymnastics at the Y when she was three years old, gradually working her way up in the program. Once her daughter joined the Gymstars, seven years ago, Kate jumped into volunteering with the program. Today, Kate is the president of the Gymstars Parent Club, but her influence goes way beyond the title. During each season, Kate donates at least 200 hours of service and by our best estimate, she has volunteered for almost 1000 hours during her service with the Y! Kate doesn’t think of her involvement as volunteering, she says that she grew up in a family that made volunteering just part of life. “I grew up not knowing how not to volunteer. It’s what we did,” she said. One the biggest volunteer roles Kate plays is the coordination of raffle baskets for the Gymstars Home Team meet. The proceeds from the baskets are used to support the work of the Parent Club, which purchases new equipment and materials for the Gymstars. Kate proposed a new way to organize the baskets which has greatly increased the yield and quality of the baskets. “We used to have only 6 baskets, but now we have up to 25 baskets and always raise over $1000 for the Gymstars” Kate said recently. Kate is also responsible to facilitate meetings, plan the banquet, organize the trip for nationals, pictures, and more. Kate claims that she just “can’t say no,” because the Gymstars have become an extended family.
