The Kelnhofer family was shaken by the loss of their dad and Chris’ husband Dennis but thanks to the support of Community Partners membership assistance and youth scholarships, they were able to keep the Y in their lives and move forward. WATCH their story here:

 “I just think the Y is fabulous. The thing that strikes me -after 26 years at the Woodson Y- you always provide a community for everybody whether you want to be a group exerciser, as an individual, a place to meet…it’s more than exercise, it’s a community.”
Joan Eckert, Wausau
