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...

Jim

Jim was a successful athlete training for an Ironman Triathlon when his life forever changed in 1992. He was hit by car while on a cycling training ride. The accident left him in a coma for 6 months, he had part of his temporal lobe removed and his left side was permanently paralyzed. His doctors said that only one percent of traumatic head injured victims like him survive. Jim’s inner and physical strength helped him be that one percent. Being told he might not be able to walk again, Jim was determined to not only walk again but be able to compete in races. With Jim’s commitment and dedication lead him to working out 7 days a week at the Y and has competed in many area races including the Bellin Run and the Cellcom Marathon. Jim’s ultimate goal is to one day be able to complete in an Ironman again. Jim
