Get to know Karen and the YMCA!
The Y believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. That's why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. They have a Fitness Facility and Hub on 31st Street in La Grange Park. They offer Fitness class for ages 3 and up, Preschool programs, After School Care, Youth Sports leagues, and programs and swimming classes for those 6 months and up at offsite locations around the community.
The YMCA has been a part of the community for over 70 years. They will be celebrating their 11th anniversary in their La Grange Park location in March. They have been a part of the Chamber since it began and were a part of the Business Association before that.
They are a part of the Chamber because their core values and mission align with the Chamber's, especially in helping the community. Being a part of the Chamber has helped the YMCA become more active in the community and raise awareness about their programs and mission in the community.
They are currently taking enrollment in all of their programs. They also have a member referral program going on. Join with a friend and you both receive 20% off your monthly membership fee. Their next big event will be Healthy Kids Day on April 21. This is a free community wide event.
Karen is involved at St. Louise de Marillac, Riverside Brookfield High School, and Lively Arts Dance Academy. She likes reading books or hanging out with her family when she's not working.
