MY Y STORY
Y Member, Danny Martinez:
My name is Danny Martinez. I am a local
pastor in the Spring Valley area. I started attending the Y through the
motivation of my son Eric Martinez. He was excited about the opening of the gym
and the possibility that we could develop better healthy habits as a family. Read More about Danny's Weight Loss at the Y...
Y Members, The Haynes Family:
Cari is 43, she has been a part of the Y since she was 10. She enjoyed attending Y camps in Plano, TX until age 16. Cari joined the South Bay YMCA in 2006 and joined the East County Family YMCA in 2008 (for 5 years now!) Cari's health and wellness journey brought her to our Y after she lost 100 LBS through weigh watchers. Cari now truly enjoys exercising and takes the group classes and boot camps at the Y to keep her going. Read more about Cari's and Her Family's Journey at the East County Family YMCA...!

In One Minute - Y We're Here
Having twin boys under the age of 10 can be a hand full! Having twin boys as a single parent - can be more that a handful! Mom and Y Member, Kimberly, is extremely grateful for all the Y has given her and her children. While she's working hard on the job, the boys are making friends, learning social skills and building self confidence at the Y's Day Camp and Youth Fitness Program.
"It is truly amazing to see your kids learn what they're capable of. I would never have imagined when joining the Y (thanks to its Scholarships Program), that my boys and I would together, work on our health and self-confidence. I definitely didn't plan on us feeling loved and card for. Thanks to everyone who makes our Y possible! It's a fantastic organization that makes a difference."
