YMCA Waiving Joining Fee During National Heart Month

January 28, 2009

As National Heart Month kicks off this February, the Weekley Family YMCA is waiving its joining fee and holding events all month long.

Some of the events at the Weekley Family YMCA include:

Feb. 2 and 3:  2009 Partners Campaign Member Donor Week-Learn more about the YMCA Mission and how you can make a difference in the lives of area families in need.

Feb. 13: Member Appreciation Day-We will be giving away FREE pedometers to our members, while supplies last.

Feb. 17: Active Older Adult Whole Food Market “Value” Store Tour-Bellaire Location

Feb. 21: Father/Daughter Sweetheart Dance 6 p.m.-9 p.m. at the YMCA

“We’ve got to make exercise and physical activity part of our daily routines,” says Dawn Dunn, health and wellness director. ”Even a short walk or swim can help reduce the negative effects of stress.”

The YMCA makes membership available to everyone, regardless of their financial circumstances, through its program, Membership for All, which bases the cost of membership on annual household income.

For more information on donating to the Partners Campaign or on YMCA programs, including Membership for All, call 713-664-9622.
