West St. Tammany Heroes


The West St. Tammany YMCA is calling for nominations of everyday people committed to strengthening our community by performing extraordinary acts of courage and kindness in our three areas of focus: Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. The YMCA Northshore Heroes awards relate to the mission and fundamental principles of the YMCA: to put Christian principals into practice through programs that build healthy mind, body, and spirit.  

 This year's event will be held on May 17, 2019, 11:30 a.m.

at Tchefuncta Country Club in Covington

Do you know an individual that promotes wellness; implements programs that reduce risk or help people reclaim their health?  This could be a Doctor, nurse, wellness instructor, personal trainer, healthcare worker that have gone above and beyond the call of duty to help others live a better life.
