From September 1 through 15, the Crosby YMCA Wellness Center will be honoring the region’s first responders by offering no barriers to join the Y Family. For all police department, sheriff’s department, fire department, prison and EMT employees, the standard joiner’s fee will be waived, and first responders will be able to sign up their families for the individual membership rate.

Also, on September 11, the Crosby Y will host a First Responders Heroes Salute as we gather under the American flag in front of our Wellness Center at 8:46 a.m. for a moment of silence. After the tribute, light refreshments will be served courtesy of the Crosby Y. “Every day our region’s first responders put their own lives at risk to improve our quality of life,” says John Cardone, YMCA district vice president. “Their well-being should not be sacrificed while they respond daily to our community needs. We’re proud to be honoring them.”
