#WhytheY

Join us in strengthen community via registering for the 39th Annual Turkey Chase Charity Race, participating in a food drive (YMCA Alexandria), or donating at an upcoming blood drive (Reston)!

KUDOS! TY for joining in at YMCA Fairfax County Reston for a recent blood drive, especially during the on-going blood shortage! Next one there: 12/3. www.redcrossblood.org/give.html/find-drive

It is fitting as Dr. Charles Drew (pioneer of blood banking and former Asst. Dir. of the first American Red Cross blood bank as well as past Head of Surgery for the DC-based Freedman’s Hospital from which he was born) had connections to the 12th St. Y/YMCA Anthony Bowen. He is locally honored with a school and a very prominent blood center named after him.

We are honored to be able to strengthen our community by being a partner site host at YMCA Anthony Bowen, YMCA Arlington and in Reston over the past many months.

This Friday:

Community event YMCA Fairfax County Reston at 12196 Sunset Hills Road in Reston, VA:
Edu-Futuro has developed a research-based two-generation approach that ensures immigrant youth and families attain postsecondary goals, improve long-term financial stability, and strengthen interfamily cohesiveness. Every year more families are positively impacted by Edu-Futuro’s programs.

During the last fiscal year, Edu-Futuro provided 3,385 services to 3,268 unduplicated children, youth, and adults, of which 80% are considered extremely low-income, very low-income, and low-income (based on the Community Development Block Grant Income limits.)

In our 2021 virtual Gala, Building a Brighter Future, we will honor these families' resilience, especially in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you can't join us in Building a Brighter Future, we're going to miss you, but we hope you can make a donation or sponsor the event to support those families. Thank you very much!
We're ready to meet you again (virtually!) so buy your tickets for BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE!

We will love to see you on our 23rd. Gala (virtual) on Friday, November 5, at 6:30 pm.

The money you give to BUILDING A BRIGHTER FUTURE will help minority students and immigrant families break the cycle of poverty!

Join Edu-Futuro guests and stakeholders, including elected officials, school board members, and administrators from Fairfax, Arlington, and Prince William Counties, and the Cities of Alexandria and Roanoke, to celebrate the success of first-generation college-bound students, and the wellbeing of immigrant and Latino families!

We are all Building a Brighter Future! Thank you for supporting immigrant children, youth, and families in Virginia.
If you follow our Insta or Fb page then you probably know that Kathy practically lives at the YMCA Fairfax County Reston when she’s not selling real estate. So much so that the Y recognized her ability to connect people and build community, so they asked her to join the Board of Directors. Today was her first meeting, and there’s lots to learn but she’s looking forward to having an even greater impact on the community in her new role!
Join in on Thursday!

#WellnessWednesday

Introducing another wonderful and amazing group exercise instructor for the Y, Kathy BrigIia!

Kathy grew up in Northern California but has lived in Northern Virginia most of her adult life. She has four children and five grandchildren who she loves very much!

We asked Kathy to explain her passion and drive to be a change agent in our community and here is what she had to say. "I have always loved being active and social. I'm so glad to have found group exercise—where I can do both and help others at the same time. I remember thinking how sedentary my mom got as she grew older, and when I found Silver Sneakers I thought it would have really benefited her quality of life. Teaching older adults to remain active and strong is a passion for me. I love coming to class and seeing familiar faces!"

Next time you're at the Y and see Kathy please say hi, inquire about her classes and let us find a way to help you reach your goals!
