Sioux City Noon Lions Club Awards the Y a Grant

2015-12-07 Lions grant WEBThe Norm Waitt Sr. YMCA would like to extend a huge thank you to Sioux City Noon Lions Club for supporting the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program with a $2,000 grant.

The award was given in memory of Jean and Leonard Bretzel, specifically to help fund programs that help prevent loss of sight. Type 2 diabetes is the leading cause of new cases of blindness among adults in the U.S., so the Y’s work to stop or slow the onset of the debilitating, chronic disease will ensure more adults maintain healthy eyesight – and achieve overall wellbeing.
