For Grace Huenink, the YMCA has helped to keep her 85 years young. This active senior member has found that the Y provides her with endless social, physical and emotional benefits.
As a widow, who lives alone, the Y provides Grace with both friendship and fitness. She belongs to the Senior Club, enjoys playing cards and taking group trips, as well as working out 3-5 times a week either walking or swimming.
“I’ve seen how so many other seniors are impacted through the Y by moving their bodies and staying active,” says Grace.
As a scholarship recipient at the Y, she knows it has enabled her to do so much she otherwise wouldn’t have been able to do. “I will be forever grateful for the opportunities the Y has given me,” she adds. “Because of the Y, I have a much more positive attitude towards life.”
