Experience Stories like…
The YMCA of Tacoma-Pierce County developed a four-year Good to Great plan, spanning 2005 through 2008, to guide the organization’s energy and resources. The Good to Great plan built on the YMCAs proven heritage of over 125 years of being a force for good in the community and focused efforts in six areas.
“I love to dance!” admits ten-year-old Blayne Fujita. Throughout the hour and a half Pierce County Families Get Fit class Blayne is as upbeat as the music he loves. You would never guess from his boundless energy that he is concerned about obesity and weight loss. “Blayne has become a real leader, often encouraging other participants to work harder and have fun. His parents are also learning about small nutritional changes they can make at home,” says program coordinator MoMo Pulliam. “If they as a family can sustain small lasting change, it can have a significant impact on Blayne’s future health.” Volunteer and Staff Development
Meet people like Ray and Deanna Dally Ray and Deanna Dally’s financial generosity continues to grow with our Association. They have given to the YMCA in every way possible – Annual, Capital, Endowment and Special Events – at some of the highest giving levels known to our Association. They were catalysts for the Mel Korum Family YMCA, as both Capital Campaign Major Gifts co-chairs and supporters of the previous campaigns for facilities on Pioneer Avenue and Valley Avenue. For Ray, the YMCA is more than a place to volunteer in his community: it’s a place he remembers fondly from childhood. Ray grew up in the South Hill/Puyallup area and attended a YMCA day camp and overnight camp in Lake Tapps. In high school, Ray remembers boarding a bus in South Hill and riding to the downtown Tacoma YMCA to swim.
Contribute to youth like Darren
Brian Bocott was in a car accident nine years ago and is now a paraplegic. Brian’s parents have spent those years seeking the best doctors to care for Brian, including a recent trip to Lima, Peru. With the opening of the Gig Harbor Family YMCA they found help in their own backyard. Brian and his father use the exercise equipment every couple days to help with Brian’s upper body strength. Later this spring they hope to use the warm water, zero entry pool for therapy. Brian’s parents are confident that the continued therapy and the YMCA community support will allow Brian to walk again.
Three years ago, 16-year-old Darren DeLeon was awarded one of the first Late Nite college scholarships to attend Running Start, a program that allows youth to attend community college while in high school. Darren’s parents had emigrated from the Philippines, did not have the opportunity to graduate high school and only knew work as the way to achieve a better life. They did not understand his desire to go to college. Darren, now 20, is a University of Washington Tacoma graduate with a Business Administration degree, a personal banker with Wells Fargo and a mentor for the Running Start program. He credits the Y for giving him hope and confidence.
Collaborations and Partnerships
Create Partnerships that make Big Winners Losing 60 pounds during Biggest Winner improved everything in my life, from my sleep to my energy at work. Learning about dieting the right way was really a benefit. Just being aware of my intake of proteins, fruit and vegetables, and making them an enjoyable part of eating – rather than dieting for a treat. My goal is to make the one-year mark maintaining my weight. I’m almost there! -Aaron Stewart, 2007 Biggest Winner
2007 was another successful year at the YMCA of Tacoma-Pierce County with membership, financial aid and fundraising numbers reaching record levels. We proved again this year that we are good stewards of your investments. The real success, however, is not in these outstanding numbers but in the personal stories, like those in this report, of YMCA members and participants.
