YMCA of the North

Heritage Society Gathering

On May 9, 2023, the YMCA of the North was honored to host Y visionaries at the American Swedish Institute in Minneapolis. The room was filled with over 240 guests, and we had  wonderful young speaker, Katie Rutledge, sharing her Y story in celebration of her grandfather, Phil Brain.

Please enjoy a recording of the event below, and thank you for securing the future of the Y.

You can also watch the KARE11 story on Katie Rutledge & Laura Amis’s marathon effort to raise awareness for the Bataan Memorial Death March and to raise funds for the Phillip S. Brain Jr. Endowment For YMCA Camp Menogyn.

The YMCA Heritage Society recognizes and honors visionary members of our YMCA communities who are building lasting support for the YMCA’s mission.

These individuals and families have created estate gifts for the YMCA, established YMCA endowment funds, or contributed significantly to the endowment, leaving a legacy that will impact our communities for generations.
