Real Member Stories

The YMCA is a non-profit organization focusing on Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibilities. Through fundraising, we strive to make YMCA membership and programs possible for everyone. See below for some of the ways the Garden City Family YMCA has made a difference in our community. 

“The YMCA has enhanced my life in many ways for many years. Through racquetball, and more recently, pickleball, I have met a number of wonderful people. Having been  diagnosed with multiple myeloma, I am thankful for the Y as avenue for a healthy lifestyle to help, keep me strong and active.” KAY DAVIS
