Diabetes Prevention Program
The Downtown Y will be starting a Diabetes Prevention Program class in late November! The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program is part of the CDC-led National Diabetes Prevention Program. In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will help facilitate a small group of participants in learning about healthier eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over the course of 16 one-hour sessions. After the initial 16 core sessions, participants meet monthly for added support to help them maintain their progress. For more information, please contact Katelyn Ryan at email@example.com or 317-713-8547.
Child Watch Punch Cards
Need an hour or two to run to the store, get a haircut or go to the dentist? Drop off child care is available for our members with a family membership. Punch cards with 6 punches can be purchased at member services for $30. It is one punch per child, per hour.
Child Watch Hours
First Thursday of each month @ The Rathskeller Bar
Interested in meeting new people? How about networking? Maybe meeting someone special? What better way to do this than with an after work social hour? Kick the fall off right and join us for drinks, fun and great conversation. We hope to see you there!
Leave a Legacy
Many of us have Y stories. We learned to swim at the Y as kids. We participated in a youth basketball league, or we enrolled our children in summer camp.
Even so, many people get only a small glimpse of what the Y does. During my 17 years working for the Y, I’ve had a chance to see what we really accomplish as a nonprofit in Indianapolis. We give everyone a chance to get healthier, help kids learn and graduate from school, and teach lessons about core values and leadership. When these things happen, everyone in the community wins, including you and I. That’s why I give something back to the YMCA out of each paycheck. It’s important to me . . . important enough that I hope you’ll think about joining me with a donation today.
Make a world of difference for someone right here in our community.
