To show our gratitude for the sacrifices of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the YMCA is excited to offer free, short-term memberships to healthcare workers employed at hospitals/nursing homes in our community.

Whether you care for patients, launder sheets, perform surgeries, or prepare meals, we want to say thank you by providing an outlet for you to re-energize and engage with your family.

The free membership will include access to both YMCA fitness facilities for healthcare workers and their families starting Monday, May 17 through Saturday, July 31, 2021.
