Harrison Family YMCA CEO Jacquelyn Price recently accepted a one-year grant in the amount of $9,000 through the Vidant Edgecombe Hospital Development Council’s Community Benefits Program.

This grant will support the YMCA’s Coach Approach Program for Silver Sneakers, a program initiated by the Harrison Family YMCA to help older adults become comfortable with staying healthy and in shape.

Each member of the program is provided with a coach to keep them on track and give them the best advice for their needs. The overall objective of this program is to improve the health and wellness of the community, and the YMCA is dedicated to this initiative. With the help of this grant and the Vidant Edgecombe Hospital Development Council, this effort is making gains and the community will soon see its effects.
