20/20 Membership Program 

It is a membership program that allows our existing members to refer friends and family to join the YMCA. As an incentive for becoming a partner in health and referring a new member, they will become eligible for this program. When a member helps us to create a healthier community by referring a member, both the member and the friends and family they bring to the Y will receive a 20% savings off the standard rate of membership.
