Good to be Alive - YMCA

YMCA of Rock River Valley

CEO Mike Brown performs Andy Grammer's "It's Good to be Alive." The Y unveiled this video at its 2016 Community Dinner. The YMCA of Rock River Valley certainly believes it's a good time to be alive right now. Brown laid out his vision to expand our reach to communities who don't have access to Y services. It starts with the announcement of the new Puri Family YMCA serving Southeast Rockford and Cherry Valley. We have our sights set on Southwest Rockford, Winnebago and communities to the West and Machesney Park and communities to the North. We know that when people have access to needed programs and services they live fuller lives. They are empowered to make change. They have hope.
