Members of the YMCA of Greater Dayton have many wonderful stories to share. We would love to hear your story! Please click the link to share your story with us.
WELCOME TO MY Y STORY!!
Welcome to the newest feature of the YMCA of Greater Dayton’s website - “My Y Story”. YMCA members frequently share meaningful and compelling stories with YMCA staff members on how the YMCA had impacted or changed their life. These stories are so inspirational that we had to come up with a way to share them with everyone. My Y Story is designed to help us with the task of sharing these wonderful stories with people who connect with the YMCA.
Please take an opportunity to read through the stories and even submit your own Y story. Should you choose to submit your own Y story, please consider sending us a photo for us to include with your story. If you would like assistance with sending us a picture please talk with the Branch Executive at your local YMCA.
We look forward to reading your Y story!

THE DAYCARE PROGRAM AT THE KLEPTZ YMCA WAS A HUGE HELP!
Our family was changed by the pleasant experience that we had at The Point preschool at the Kleptz YMCA. We were told about financial assistance when I lost my job, so our son was able to continue to go to preschool at The Point with good Christian leaders and staff. Our child would not have been able to attend childcare or preschool if it were not for The Point. His education and Christian experience was priceless. We now both have jobs and were able to enroll our second child at The Point. Life is good. The Lord helped us through with the help of the YMCA.

MOVE 2 LOSE AT THE YMCA HELPED ME LOSE 10 INCHES!
I was changed by my experience at the West Carrollton YMCA. I just finished Season 1 of Move 2 Lose. Through the program I lost 4 pounds and over 10 inches! I learned that I can enjoy exercise outside of the pool. Nicole Agnew, my trainer, knew just how much to push me and did so in such a positive manner. She is always patient, supportive, and professional. We laughed a lot at times, keeping the fun in my workout. If it weren’t for this program at the YMCA, I would just be going through the motions and not truly enjoying life. Now I feel healthy and know I can exercise in this manner. I even got my 81-year-old mother to attend the Silver Sneakers classes and start walking the track. It is so good that she has something to do, and the social aspect is important, as well as getting her moving. The YMCA has really made a difference in my family’s life.

MOVE 2 LOSE AT THE COFFMAN YMCA CHANGED MY LIFE!
The positive experience that I had during YMCA Move 2 Lose program has truly changed my life. Dan Reffitt was my Move 2 Lose trainer at the Coffman branch in Springboro. He exceeded every expectation I had. He was tough on me when he needed to be, but also a comfort when I was too hard on myself. I had joined Weight Watchers and had my eating under control, but Dan helped me accelerate that and double my weight loss and fitness level. Dan truly helped me reach beyond my fitness goals and made me self-sufficient at the same time. He left a lasting impression on me.

WHAT YOU DO IS REALLY AMAZING!
I just wanted to say that I thought the youth triathlon was really great. And I really enjoyed helping out. It was also nice to meet some of your staff and learn about the obstacles that some of the kids have overcome. What you do is really amazing. I can't believe that I've been in the Dayton area for over 10 years and never realized this event existed!
I live in Fairborn, and will check with the YMCA here to see what kind of volunteer opportunities they have, but if you ever need an extra body to help out, please let me know.

THANK YOU FROM A GRATEFUL FAMILY
Thank you so much Greater Dayton YMCA for all your help getting my son a scholarship for the YMCA Strong Kids Triathlon. He finished the race and is already talking about next year! We appreciate all your help and consideration for our family. Without your support this event would not have happened for our family. Thank you again.
