Susan Hachey worked at the YMCA of Southwestern New Brunswick’s Child Care for 25 years and worked one year with each age group before becoming a Director of Child Care, where she remained as a director for 18 years. As retirement grew closer, Susan moved to working part-time with the After School-aged children for three years.
All through these years, Susan remained very passionate about raising money for the Strong Kids Campaign, now called Strong Communities Campaign. Susan helped organize different events throughout the years, including a Pie in the Face event, and hot dog and bake sales, but in 2009, Susan thought that a walk-a-thon would be fun for all and would benefit the Strong Kids Campaign greatly. This walk was a success and continued throughout the years.
Susan passed away in September of 2022. To carry on Susan’s legacy the YMCA honoured Susan by hosting The Susan Hachey Walk-A-Thon for Strong Communities on Friday, June 16th.
Children, educators and a few other Regional Y staff walked along Churchill Blvd and raised $1,250.
