Saturday is a big day for KSB Hospital and The Dixon Family YMCA, as we announce a 10-year partnership between our organizations.
KSB and The Y enjoy a shared history of success. One of my mentors, Dale Presley, told me stories about a period in the 1960’s when KSB paid the utility bills and provided maintenance work for The Y during a time of hardship for that organization.
Countless KSB team members have served The Y as board members, through fundraising efforts, and as volunteer coaches.
Six years ago KSB formalized its relationship with a partnership that provided financial assistance that would allow The Y to lease exercise equipment, resulting in a significant modernization. In return, KSB received naming rights for that area.
Saturday marks a deepening of our ties that realizes our organizations have a shared goal of improving the health of the communities we serve, with a special emphasis on our children.
KSB’s mission includes the challenge to “restore, maintain and enhance health by providing superior care now and in the future”.
This partnership moves us closer to that goal.
“The power of one, if fearless and focused, is formidable, but the power of many working together is better.”
