Kristina, a young mother, was exercising at another fitness facility which was too expensive for this college student on a tight budget. Studying to become an elementary teacher, she was also managing the anniversary of her father’s death and some anxiety. Kristina approached the Y for financial assistance. Listening to her needs, the Y awarded Kristina and her son a scholarship so that she can lose weight (she lost 65 lbs. running on our treadmills!) and sign up her son for soccer. Kristina explains that she will take full advantage of the Y’s activities in her commitment to make healthy choices.
