Testimony from a Wheatlands Resident

YMCA staff, 
I wanted to take a moment to send a letter of true appreciation to all of you during this time! As you may notice by my signature line, I am a healthcare worker whose job has continued, and perhaps asked to work harder, during COVID 19. When schools were “postponed”, my family was unsure of what this would mean for my 6 year old who loved and adored her kindergarten class. As time went on, we learned that what we knew as kindergarten was no longer “what we knew” it to be.

In times of desperate measure, we were “matched” with the Wheatland’s YMCA in Aurora, CO. Starting my daughter here made us all nervous (new place, new kids, new teachers etc.) but we have had nothing but great experiences! The staff at the Wheatland’s Y have been FANTASTIC! They are some of the true essential staff during this time. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to do the job that I do to help out my team and the patients we serve. It uplifts my heart every day to come home and here my daughter’s answer to “How was your day baby?” and she says “It was really good mom! We got to make dragonflies”, or “I met a new best friend mom!” because everyone is a best friend at 6 . 
Please share my gratitude. Not only with the corporation or the local chapter but all the staff that are providing care during this time. Your days have made my daughter’s days brighter and thus, you have warmed my heart. I cannot thank you enough. 
Thank you,
Join us through Zoom to connect with our instructors and other YMCA members during our live fitness classes. Enjoy live yoga, SilverSneakers, Total Body Conditioning, Essentrics and many more, all taught by our Denver Y fitness instructors. More classes added weekly.
