Did you know that one-third of the Blanchard Park YMCA members need financial assistance?
And we in the BPY Tri Club are very fortunate. We have 6 workouts a week that are geared just for us and a dedicated Coach. We also do NOT to have to pay extra club dues (most tri clubs are NOT free!).
So how can we give back and help others?
Well, one easy way is to simply participate in club events where the proceeds go toward the Blanchard Park Y scholarship fund, such as the swim clinics taught by Coach Beth Barnes. For $15 you not only get help with your swimming, you are helping a great cause. Stay tuned for the new date of the second swim clinic!
Another way to help is getting involved with the scholarship campaign. All those who are interested are invited to attend a meeting/training on Wednesday, 3/3 from 7-8 PM at the Blanchard Park YMCA. In addition, anyone who is getting involved is invited to attend a Scholarship Kick-off Celebration at the Lake Nona YMCA on Friday, 3/5 from 6:30-8 PM (this a family friendly celebration with food and activities).
The BPY Tri Club point of contacts (POCs) for the scholarship program are Pastor Paul and Juli von Werder and Coach Beth Barnes.
