Virginia YMCAs join to offer free access to all other Y members across the state

The Y stands for healthy living and to make sure all members continue to be involved wherever they may travel, YMCAs across the State of Virginia have joined together to offer reciprocal membership through their "My Y is Every Y" program.
The program, which begins July 1st, allows Y members to access over 80 YMCAs throughout Virginia at no charge when they present a valid Y ID card.

"Our members count on their local Ys for their health and wellness needs. Now they'll be able to take advantage of what Ys across the State have to offer. We're very excited to be able to bring this added benefit to members," said Robyn Hansen, President of Board for the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA. "We look forward to welcoming members from other Ys as we all stand together to strengthen our communities."

Through "My Y is Every Y", full facility/full privilege members have access rights to over 80 YMCAs throughout Virginia. Members should bring their YMCA ID card and a photo ID card to check into a partner Y. Some restrictions may apply depending on the YMCA, so members are encouraged to check with the Y they plan to visit ahead of time to learn the specifics.

"The program is a growing trend across the YMCA movement so we're pleased to be able to expand these benefits to members here in Virginia," said Lisa Drouin, Resource Director for YMCA of the USA. "No matter where our members travel across Virginia, they'll be able to stay connected to the local community and improve their health and well-being."

The Greater West Point Family YMCA and all locations of the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA, YMCA of South Hampton Roads, YMCA of Greater Richmond, and over 80 YMCAs across the state of Virginia are all participating in this amazing fee added benefit to YMCA membership.
