Health Pledge

Health TipsTake the YMCA HEALTH PLEDGE

It is human nature to perform your best when you are personally challenged and when you share your goals with others. So the Y is challenging all of our members to take a pledge to be more active and eat healthier in 2015.

During January, 2015, find a pledge card in the Y lobby or Wellness Center and make a promise to yourself and/or family. All pledges will be displayed as a reminder of the commitment you made to live a healthier lifestyle.
