Even the best of us occasionally need a TIME OUT—a purposeful little nudge that points us in the right direction. Consider this as your little nudge — without the special chair or solitary corner. This time out is all about reward and not punishment.

Slow down. Eat some great food. Try a new brew.

Mix and mingle with new friends and old pals as you bid — silently — or on full throttle to RAISE FUNDS and AWARENESS for the Kohl Family YMCA -- and in particular, the Y-Strong program for recovery from addiction.

Think how much better you’ll feel by getting out of your corner to help more people participate in activities that promote a healthy spirit, mind and body.
