For over five decades, the YMCA of Southwestern New Brunswick has been an influential part of Neil and Christine Jacobsen’s lives in some way or another.
The Jacobsen’s recognize that through the pandemic, there has been a significant amplification of stress and strain that people in our community are facing, which has reinforced the importance of mental and physical well-being, and the simple—yet increasingly vital—need to find a welcoming place to belong.
“The YMCA provides a critically important foundation for both physical and mental wellbeing – it provides continuity and stability…Supporting the Strong Communities Campaign is a way we can collectively make a lasting impact by helping to change individual lives.”
Neil and Christine also recognize the increasing barriers that many in the community face to accessing the programs and services at the Y. As the 2023 Honourary Co-Chairs, they know that supporting the YMCA through the Annual Strong Communities Campaign is a wonderful way to share the Y experience and build a strong, healthy, diverse and growing community. Their aim is to help ensure that the YMCA remains accessible to all.
