On Feb. 25, YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) and the Door County YMCA launched Zoe for President, a campaign to elect a one-year-old girl as our nation’s Commander in Chief…in 2064. The campaign highlights the potential the Y sees in all kids to grow up and change the world if they’re nurtured properly and supported along the way. Through Y initiatives like childcare, after school care and homework assistance, mentorship, summer foods, leadership opportunities and more, kids have greater potential to succeed, stay active and healthy in mind, body and spirit, and one day, maybe even become president.
“The Door County Y works to ensure all individuals have the support they need to achieve their full potential,” said Tom Beerntsen, CEO of the Door County YMCA. “We are focused here in Door County and our surrounding community, on providing programs and services that address some of the most critical social issues facing our area, such as: LiveSTRONG – a program that offers support both physically and mentally for cancer survivors, Summer Foods – which provides free, healthy meals for hundreds of children all summer long, and many other mission related programs for children, adults, families and senior citizens.”
