It’s American ! ❤️ Tomorrow we kick off our month-long activities to bring awareness on how to keep your heart healthy. When we understand our risk factors for heart disease, we can take steps to keep healthy.

Tomorrow Feb 3 is Wear Red Day. Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, causing 1 in 3 deaths each year, but the simple truth is that most cardiovascular diseases can still be prevented with education and healthy lifestyle changes.

Join us by wearing red for your workout tomorrow (take a picture 📸 and tag us)!

For our kickoff event, we will be dancing our way to better health at our Dance Fusion Party. Melinda, Jessie, Ivory, Marijia, Brittany, and Lien will all be there! Bring a friend, get those hearts beating with the music and have some fun!! 🪩 💃🏽 🕺🏽 🎶

Come any time from 5:30-7:30 PM!!!

DYK: The first YMCA for African Americans was founded in Anthony Bowen in Washington, DC in 1853. Bowen was born enslaved in 1809 and moved to Washington in 1826 after saving up to buy his freedom. Through his work at the United States Patent Office, he met William Chauncy Langdon, a board member of the YMCA. Bowen became interested in the Y and worked to organize and open the first Y for African Americans in the United States.

For Social Responsibility


The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits, committed to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington offers all men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive in the continuum of life. Anchored with 17 branches and program centers in the Greater DC area, the Y has the long-standing relationships, dedication, and presence to deliver lasting personal and social change.


The YMCA of Metropolitan Washington fosters the spiritual, mental and physical development of individuals, families and communities according to the ideals of inclusiveness, equality and mutual respect for all.


In our four core services areas — aquatics, child care, camp, and health and wellness — the YMCA offers unparalleled programs and services. All of our programs promote our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

OUR IMPACT (in 2009):

The Y provided $1,910,758 in scholarships and subsidies to local children and families who turned to the YMCA for help.

As a result, 9,817 children and adults were able to participate in life-enriching YMCA programs and services they otherwise could not afford because of our scholarship program.
