"Mama" Sue

In December 2017, the Windward YMCA swimming pool underwent a major pool renovation. This gracious and generous gift was given to us by our very dear and so very missed "Mama Sue Wild." Sue's gift is now being shared with over 4,000 members and participants.


Sue believed that:"Everyone Should Remain Safe Around the Water."
