About MeI'm a mom, who's been involved with the Mission Valley YMCA Skate & Bike Park for years because they have always supported my daughter and all the children who visit the park. Whenever you drop in for a session, participate in after school or summer camps, take lessons, or come to an event you are always welcomed. As a parent I've always felt safe leaving her there knowing that she will have fun plus learn skateboarding and life skills. I love that they encourage not just skateboarding but etiquette!
My Y StoryI've volunteered for numerous events at the park - including 3 Clash Events - so I've seen first hand all the work the staff puts in to make sure the kids needs come first. I've also seen the positive difference that skating and volunteering at the Y have had on my daughter. When she started skating there she was afraid of most things, now she's a confident senior heading off to college next fall.
I hope you donate to this fundraiser so tons more kids have the opportunities that she's had to be the best they can be on & off their skateboards, bikes & scooters!
