OAK RIDGE, TX - Every year the South Montgomery County Family YMCA recognizes an outstanding volunteer for their generosity of spirit, hard work and compassion for others. We are pleased to announce that The City of Oak Ridge North has been named this year’s YMCA Volunteer of the Year.

Representing The City of Oak Ridge North included Andy Walters Chief of Police, Vicky Rudy City Manager and Jim Kuykendall, Mayor were presented with their award at the YMCA of Greater Houston’s Annual Celebration on Saturday, April 23 at the Houston Zoo. They joined 30 others, each representing an individual YMCA center.

The City of Oak Ridge North received the Volunteer of the Year Award for their dedication and support of the GE Run Thru the Woods Directed by The South Montgomery County Family YMCA. The city has generously donated their services, man-power and resources to set up, protect and monitor the majority of the 5 Mile course that passes through their community on Thanksgiving morning for 20+ years.

“As most of you know, at the YMCA, strengthening communities is our cause,” said Mandy Stelzer, Executive Director of the South Montgomery County Family YMCA. “The City has been an active part of our cause by giving their time and talents to those who need it most. In fact, none of the work we do would be possible without the dedication and passion of our volunteers who put in so much effort in making our cause their own.”

YMCA volunteers work tirelessly to help children, families and individuals overcome barriers and achieve more in areas of education, chronic disease prevention, swim safety and family relationships. They also focus on ensuring that the YMCA’s written mission statement becomes a reality in the lives of thousands of people who walk through the centers’ doors each day.
