Kudos to the YMCA

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

The Bedell Family YMCA has to be congratulated on the wonderful Healthy Kids Superhero program that was available on April 16! My family was very happy to see the professionalism, creativity and enthusiastic spirits of the Bedell Family YMCA. I have 2 kids who participated in the numerous activities that truly made them feel like superheroes! This was a wonderful opportunity for all kids to participate in physical activity and encourage them to "play." With all the staff and volunteers available, it was clear this was no easy task and required detailed planning and execution. The Bedell Family YMCA truly outdid themselves!

We are very blessed to have such a facility encouraging all persons to engage in more physical activity, given the obesity trends in the United States. The Bedell Family YMCA demonstrates that this commitment to healthy bodies and minds begins at an early age and sets positive patterns into their adulthood. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the entire staff at the Bedell Family YMCA. The consistent professionalism, excitement and availability that the YMCA demonstrates, truly is an example of why we are proud members. My family cannot wait to participate in this activity again and we will be actively encouraging all our friends to attend in the future. Thank you again Bedell Family YMCA for being such an integral part of the community!

Grateful as always,

Larry, Abbi, Jackson, Sydney and Zoe Wajda
