The Brindley Family Tri for the Y!
On October 7th, our family of 4 will be doing a triathlon in Michelle’s hometown of Pensacola, Florida. The kids will have a bit of a shorter distance but we will all be swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, biking along Via DeLuna and running through the streets of Pensacola Beach.
As many of you know, Michelle is on the board of the Dodge YMCA in Brooklyn Heights. This has always been an organization that is very close to our hearts as it is right in our neighborhood and serves its residents in so many ways. We are running this race as a fundraiser for the Dodge YMCA and hope that you will contribute.
Many people view the YMCA as a gym or a place to swim but it is so much more. The Dodge YMCA provides after school programs, summer camps, teen programs and a place for local families to gather and engage with each other. They provide programming for adults to support them in their paths of leading a healthy life. And they provide a community for our active older adults to socialize and exercise. Every day, the staff at the Dodge Y works side by side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. More importantly, the YMCA never turns anyone away based on their inability to pay.
The Y changes so many lives in so many ways in our community. Without these programs, many individuals and families would not have other options. Your generosity will make a significant differerence.
Thank you in advance for your donation,
Scott, Michelle, Isobel and Lucas
