August 2023 – Caldwell YMCA Golden Games

Caldwell, Idaho Team at Caldwell YMCA Golden Games

The team in Caldwell recently spent two days volunteering for and sponsoring the Golden Games, held at the local YMCA. There were many great events including a 5K walk/run, ping pong, pickleball, and the most competitive and exciting event – deadlifting!

We had a chance to connect with the community and hear a lot of amazing and uplifting stories. One of the winners of the deadlift competition was almost 80 and lifted 300 pounds! He was recovering from such a bad case of diabetes that he could barely walk this time last year, and he worked hard to get this win. He went to the YMCA daily for training, social interaction, and most of all to have fun. Other amazing seniors hit huge personal records at the Golden Games, helped along by the training they did at the YMCA.

The YMCA has also created a safe space for the younger crowd with after school programs and tools to help any age in their healthy living journey. We were blown away by the facilities and support that the members at the YMCA give each other. It was inspiring watching them live their best healthy lives.

The Y’s core values are caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. We saw them all in the two days we were there and were honored to be a part of it.
