The Tues/Thurs 10:30 AM AOA water class is canceled until further notice.
The YMCA has been serving the Westside community for 65 years and we believe everyone should have access to the Y. Our goal is to raise $188,000 in 2019 so that we can live up to our commitment to being open and accessible to all. The Hendricks Regional Health YMCA will host its Annual Kick-Off Breakfast on Wednesday, February 20, spotlighting food from local Westside restaurants. We will also honor the recipients of our 2019 Cause-Driven Leadership & Volunteer Awards. Please join us for this event as a way to show your support for our YMCA and those we serve. Sarah Fisher, IndyCar driver, will be our special guest speaker at this event.
As a 9 time Indy 500 starter and the most by a woman, Sarah Fisher holds many records. Including the first woman to win the pole position for a major North American open-wheel event, the fastest woman to ever qualify for the Indianapolis 500 and the still current track record holder at Kentucky Speedway. After 8 years of INDYCAR team ownership, driving for herself in 3 of those years, being awarded “Indy’s Best and Brightest Leaders under 40,” voted “Most Popular Driver” four times in two separate series (INDYCAR and Nascar), and leading all American Josef Newgarden to his first 2 victories in INDYCAR, it won’t surprise you that her newest venture is an Indoor Karting Facility and Racing Restaurant (Speedway Indoor Karting, 1911 Grill) in Speedway, Indiana. Fisher and her husband Andy live on the south side of Indianapolis with their 2 children Zoey (7) and Danny (4).
