Let me start off by saying THANK YOU for all your help in organizing such a wonderful, memorable and successful Strong Kids Campaign. The past 10 days were a lot of fun and an amazing experience that I'll always cherish.
Well this has been an experience for me I must say. Working full time and school time and kids on the go. In doing this Strong Kids Participants Challenge I have learnt a lot of things about the Y. Really first and foremost how compassionate we all are in whatever position you are in with the Y.
The Y starts with kids first and this helps build our community. As the saying goes "It takes a community to raise a child" I truly believe this.
Thanks again for organizing the YAP tour. Definitely a real eye-opener and it's unbelievable how great of a job Misty is doing.
