Vince & Karla’s Y is resilience

Karla's husband, Vince, was hit with a 7000lb beam at work. Karla credits the Y for helping Vince to recover physically—moving his legs again against all odds. Their whole family comes to play, connect and move past difficult times.

Tom’s Y is camaraderie

Tom is a donor who has been strongly connected to the Y since the 1950’s, excelling in various sports and teaching those skills to others. He describes the YMCA as a formative development centre and antidote to loneliness.

Mariely’s Y is community

Though Mariely was an accomplished athlete and coach in Venezueala, she struggled to find opportunities in Kelowna because of the language barrier. Luckily, she found a welcoming place to thrive as a YMCA volunteer.
