Regaining Control of Her Health
Kari is a single mother to three young children. After facing a series of very challenging obstacles, she needed to regain control of her health and strength. Joining the Y through the Open Doors scholarship program, she struggled to find faith and trust in her new environment, but took solace in the Christian pulse that runs through the Cannon YMCA.
Since joining the West Cabarrus Y, Kari has brought her children to the Y Playhouse, taken the CREATION Health class and joined Zumba classes. She has found that it is a great comfort having the right people in the Y Playhouse, as the Cannon YMCA does, especially for single parents who often struggle to find a safe place for their young children. In her Zumba classes, Kari has made lasting friendships built on faith, strength and togetherness.
