We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

Noel1Good Luck, Noel! We Will Miss You Around the Y!

If you thought you saw a four-legged friend walking around the Y, you were not mistaken! Since 2007, our YMCA has hosted approximately 40 Guiding Eyes for the Blind puppies in pre-training! Noel, a 16-month-old Labrador Retriever, left for New York Friday, January 23rd, for her In-for-Training Test. Her raisers, the Mulcahy family, Daniel, Danny, and Teresa, brought Noel to the West Cabarrus Y frequently because the facility offers diverse training opportunites for these puppies with a purpose.

"All our guide dog puppies need to experience various public places for training. Without the Y's partnership, we couldn't do what we do on a regular basis. The Y has been so gracious and welcoming," said Belvie Gilleland of Guiding Eyes for the Blind. If you would like to lear more about Guiding Eyes puppies, go to www.guidingeyes.org.
