My Y Story

Kelli Kappenman


Raising a toddler can certainly be a handful… but how about twins?! Y member Kelli Kappenman sure knows the feeling!

With her girls Lilli and Anna now approaching two years old, you’d think she spends all her energy and time chasing them around. But the Sioux Falls native and half-marathon runner can lean on the Y to give her a break and give her daughters some fun time to play and socialize with other kids.

Kelli usually starts her day with a trip to the Y to workout and recharge for the full-time duties of being a mom. Meanwhile she knows Lilli and Anna will be safe and happy in the Y’s Child Watch.

Without resources at the Y like Child Watch, Kelli wouldn’t have time to focus on her own personal wellbeing while allowing her girls to spend time in a learning and caring atmosphere!
