My Y Story: Gloria
Healthy living brought family together
Gloria’s daughter Gloria (yes, they have the same name), was referred to the YMCA’s ACT! (Actively Changing Together) youth obesity prevention program by her physician. They joined the program to get healthy and lose weight.
The program is designed for families and helps kids and parents find fun ways to be active, make healthy and tasty food, and support a healthy lifestyle for the whole family. Gloria (mom) enjoyed the parent discussions where she made new friends and shared healthy recipes. Younger Gloria liked working with the coaches and new she could trust them.
Both Glorias enjoyed how the family grew closer together because they began doing food prep and healthy activities together.
“It’s an amazing program and we can’t wait to take it again.”
