Raise money for YMCA of Greater Houston
VIC COPPINGER FAMILY YMCA
For over 130 years, the YMCA of the Greater Houston Area has been a place where people can find hope, fellowship and healing. They know that positive change comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors, staying true to their mission, values and purpose of helping persons grow in spirit, mind and body.
“As a leader in preventive health, the YMCA offers a broad range of research-based programs that target specific health issues and we are committed to offering the education and support needed to help those in our community regain control of their health.” Said Suzanne Murray, Center Executive Director of the Vic Coppinger Family YMCA. “By teaching necessary lifestyle changes, we aim to prevent chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes and reduce the incidence of obesity in our youth. We are excited to partner with the Pearland Half Marathon to encourage our community to embrace a healthy lifestyle.”
In the Greater Houston area, 26 YMCA facilities, one overnight camp and hundreds of program sites nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the city’s health and well-being and provide opportunities for individuals to give back and support neighbors.
