January 2014 – Dustin Ruch chose the YMCA Strong Community Fundraising. Dustin chose this organization because the YMCA programs build self-confidence, teach leadership skills and reinforce positive values. The YMCA Strong Community Program helps children who could otherwise not afford to play team sports. Participating in team sports builds a sense of community and promotes a healthy lifestyle that will hopefully follow them throughout their lives.
The YMCA commits to the spiritual, mental and physical growth of all children and teens in the Greater St. Louis area. Since 1853, the YMCA of Greater St. Louis has helped people grow in spirit, mind and body. The Y has committed to ensure every young person in the Greater St. Louis area from 5 to 15 years of age has the opportunity to become a healthy, productive member of society.
