From our COO Vince Iaculano
What An Amazing Journey
What an amazing month of January we just enjoyed at our Y! We added 631 new units of membership (381 at Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA, 131 at Verdugo Hills Family YMCA and 119 at Crescenta Valley Family YMCA), welcoming in 2,400 new individuals to our Y family!
Thanks to a generous grant from The Capital Group (through our YMCA board members Ken Gorvetzian and Brian Daniels) we were able to expand our PLAY program to 3 elementary school sites in LAUSD (Pinewood, Mountain View and Sunland).
Over Dr. Martin Luther King Weekend our Crescenta-Cañada Family YMCA Dragons Swim Team won the Winter Swim Regionals at Rowland Heights High School scoring 1,200 points!
Our YMCA of the Foothills Dynamites Gymnastics Team won the Copper Division and placed 4th in the Bronze Division of the 2019 Las Vegas Mega Invitational hosted by USAIGC.
We also launched a first-of-its-kind fitness and Wellbeing program for the teachers of LCUSD called Wellness on Wheels! This program is offered to educators and school administrators afterschool on-site at La Cañada Elementary, Palm Crest Elementary, Paradise Canyon Elementary and La Cañada High School, and provides a variety of Group Exercise classes lead by Y certified instructors free through our mobile gym.
We strive every day to provide our members and community a world-class experience in Wellbeing through multiple programs and services. And so much more to come!
Thank you for being a part of our shared Mission!
