THE BEST DECISION
Maria - Fort Myers YMCA
Like many families, Maria and her two sons, Martin, 10, and Mateo, 9, didn’t lead the most active life. “We did not have a healthy mindset,” Maria said. Most of the children’s activities involved electronic games and little interaction. Maria herself suffered from migraines and muscle fatigue.
Determined to make a change, Maria enrolled her children in YMCA soccer and began being more active herself.
“My children began to believe in the sport and its benefits, and my health problems have almost disappeared,” she said. “We are more active and are eager to be healthy.”
