I primarily made the decision to give to honor my granddaughter, Aubrey Denny.  She passed away unexpectedly as an infant from SIDS.  I intended it to be a one time donation.  But when I retired and became a member of the Y, things changed.  I was working out regularly and noticed that there were teens working out as well.  That took me back to my days at the Y when I was younger.  I was a teen with less than average self-esteem.  While I was a member at the Y, a program director realized that I was less than confident and invited me to join the “leaders club”.  That was the first time that I believed that I could be anything I wanted to be.  After being told for years that my future was limited, the Y helped me realize it was limitless.  That is why I give to the annual campaign of the YMCA, to let others know there are no limits.
