Tell Us Your Y Story


If you’re a Y member, program participant, volunteer or donor, you have a Y story. We want to know how the Y has impacted and changed your life for the better. We will award 3 month memberships to selected winning stories. As an added bonus, every submitted story will receive a free Y t-shirt.

In 4-5 sentences, tell us why your family uses the Y, how the Y helps you stay healthy, what has the Y helped make possible for you as an individual, how has the Y helped shape your community, what youth programs have taught you or any other reasons you love the Y.

The deadline to submit is July 17.


The YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South may follow up on story submission for more information as winners are selected. All winners will be notified by July 29, 2016.
