Jane’s Story

Jane Marrone joined the Darien YMCA over 20 years ago when her family returned to Connecticut after living abroad in England. First training with Andrea in the wellness center and more recently finding community and health during retirement by participating in water aerobics. As Jane tells it, her water aerobics group receives safe and robust work-outs in the pool and has formed friendship that they count on both in and outside of class.  

This spring Jane returned to the Y, anxious to exercise and reconnect. As Jane described to Karen Ford, Development Director, "The Y has done an excellent job protecting us from COVID exposure. I think the staff and administration have demonstrated such kindness and ingenuity to make us all feel safe!" 

 Jane hopes that by making a financial contribution to the Y, she can encourage those who benefit so greatly from its existence to follow her lead and, "help sustain the many ways one can keep in shape and benefit from the community that surrounds all of us at this exceptional place to keep healthy."  

Thank you Jane for your support!
