“By leaving a donation in my will, I can give more than I could give in my lifetime.”

Claire Lemieux started coming to the YMCA in the early '70s, as a lifeguard and a camp director. She was also involved with international programs while still a student. Claire was one of the first women to sign up for a health and fitness membership at the Y.

“I have confidence in the organization: Its longevity, its ability to meet people’s needs, the importance it attaches to partnerships...”

Later on, Claire stayed involved as a volunteer at the Downtown YMCA and went on to become a member of the Board of Directors. For years, she worked out at the Y three times a week.

“I heard a lot of stories that moved me. It’s comforting to know that there are organizations like the YMCA.”
