August is National Wellness Month, focusing on self-care best practices and routines that help reduce stress and worry in our lives! Your Y is placing itself at the cutting edge of “Communal Holistic well-being” as we look to provide additional pathways to a person’s spiritual, mental, social, and physical health. We are doing so with our partners in this space from Glendale Healthier Community Coalition and through innovative and “non-traditional” programs and services like our Adaptive Aquatics Program and our Chaplain Program. We know holistic health and well-being come in all forms and fashions. As an organization dedicated to healthy living, we will continue to pour resources and passion into this vital work.
Our Y had an incredibly impactful month of July as we focused on Youth Development and Summer Camp. Here are some of the highlights:
DAY CAMP CAMP BIG BEAR Campers served: 749 Campers: 118 Financial Assistance Given: $20,762 Financial Assistance Given: $9,682.50
As we finish up summer and get ready to head back to school and work, I want you to know that our Y wishes you all the very best of health and happiness in August. I am looking forward to seeing you all at the Y.
Onward and Upward!
