Wilson - Gray MOCHA Bike Ride
The MOCHA members had the opportunity to participate in a bike ride adventure. It was a 16 mile round trip from Simsbury to Granby, CT. The guys really had an awesome experience during the ride. They were able to support and encourage each other to keep pushing forward. Working as a team, all of the members successfully completed the bike route in its entirety. Program participants also enjoyed a barbecue lunch at Granbrook Park during the midway point of the ride. They were able to socialize, listen to music and build lasting memories with each other. This was an awesome opportunity for the men to exercise outside of the Wellness Center at Wilson-Gray and enjoy the outdoors. They have been working hard on improving their health and this is another great milestone accomplished. Way to work fellas!
2015 Spring College Tour
Spring has gotten off to a great start! The Wilson-Gray YMCA Youth & Family Center held its second annual College Tour and our Youth Teen Incentive Program (Y-TIP) hosted a record 41 students from different programs and high schools throughout the Hartford area. We kicked off the week-long tour in North Carolina. There, we visited the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. Our next destination was Virginia; within two days we visited four schools including Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Richmond, Norfolk State University and Hampton University. At Hampton, we were delighted to be greeted by former program member and current college sophomore, Khalil Abrams. Our tour concluded in Maryland at the University of Maryland and finally Morgan State University.
The Regional Community YMCA Is Taking Shape
Community volunteers who campaigned, cajoled, and fundraised their way to leading the charge for the construction of the new Regional Community YMCA in Putnam put their names on it-- literally-- as they signed a 22 beam before it was hoisted atop the gymnasium at the new Y.
Investing in Your Child’s Future
Education is a priority for most parents, ensuring their child has a solid academic foundation to help them succeed. It can be a huge financial drain with parents struggling to find funds to ensure their children receive the best possible education. Some families are able to—and do—invest large sums of money into private schooling, even as early as elementary school.
