From Staff Reports
Cecilia Baker, daughter of Tony and Patty Baker, raised $700 during the month of April for the Unicoi County Family YMCA. The motivation behind her fundraising efforts was the fundraiser Rally for the Y that the YMCA holds every year.
Through Rally for the Y, members are able to ride the Y’s expresso bikes in their fitness center in order to get a certain amount of money to be donated to the Y per mile. During the month of April, they are also allowed to get outside donors to donate to their ride. Cecilia participated in both efforts by riding every day and asking for donations all over Erwin.
The YMCA’s staff thanked Anthony (Tony) White for matching $300 towards Cecilia’s donations. The Y’s staff also expressed thanks to Steel Rails, Roller Pharmacy, Care and Share, Clinchfield Drug and several others for taking part in helping raise funds at the Y.
