Our Mission

To put Christian Principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

The YMCA is a cause driven non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening our communities in spirit, mind and body. Much more than just a fitness center, we focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility as well. At the Y we know we aren't simply in the community, but a part of it, and when we strengthen others we strengthen ourselves. Welcome to the Y. You belong here.

My Y Story...

Betsy

My life completely changed in April 2013 when I had life-saving open heart surgery. A few years later, it seemed like time to put that surgery to good use and start working out again. My goal wasn't to lose those last few extra pounds of baby weight, although that was a nice benefit. My goal wasn't to make it through Wisconsin winter without seasonal depression, but with the help of endorphins, that also happened. My goal wasn't to empower and socialize my children, but that was an amazing gift to my family at the Kids Korner. My goal wasn't to become a better mom, but I became one through taking a little bit of time to refill my cup, so that I was able to give throughout the day. My goal wasn't to find a hobby, which I desperately needed, but I found one. My goal wasn't to find confidence within myself, but now I'm strong physically and mentally. My goal wasn't to make friends, but I've made them every step of the way at the Y. My goal wasn't to learn to completely live in the moment, but I learned how by being present and giving my all in every aspect of my workouts. My goal wasn't to find a job, but I've been able to work and play simultaneously at the Y. My goal IS to take care of my heart. Literally and figuratively, I accomplish that daily with my Y family! - Betsy Hornseth
