Generous funds sponsor participation for 39 kids in Scott County YMCA spring soccer league 

No one is kept from participating in YMCA of Central Kentucky activities for inability to pay, and the Y recently demonstrated this principle by sending almost 40 children from a low-income neighborhood to participate in the YMCA’s youth soccer league in Scott County.

In March the Y used donated funds to send 39 kids from the Georgetown Estates community to youth soccer league’s spring session, which lasted through May. Donations from Whitaker Bank, Grace Christian Church and Southland Christian Church totals at about $800, all of which was used to buy cleats, shirts, soccer balls and other materials for league participants.

LIVESTRONG at the YMCA program
Published: 06.08.16 -

When Bob Johnson was diagnosed with cancer and given a 50 percent chance to live, he had to make a decision. His doctor told him having a positive attitude might not necessarily save him, but that he would certainly die if he gave up completely.

"I decided that there were enough things in my life that I still wanted to accomplish, and that it was worth fighting for," said Johnson, who has since made a full recovery from stage-four head and neck cancer. "I would say that the YMCA … has really been the heart of my recovery, and continues to be."

Johnson now works with the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA, a small-group program developed and established in partnership with the LIVESTRONG Foundation, to assist those who are living with, through or beyond cancer to strengthen their spirit, mind and body. He was part of the first group of participants in the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA here in Lexington. He is also an avid stage actor and has run in two marathons since his diagnosis; the 2012 Pittsburgh Marathon and the 2013 Cincinnati Flying Pig Marathon.
