For Your Health
For Your Health is a collaborative effort of the Davie Family YMCA and the Davie County Chamber of Commerce to connect our health and wellness businesses directly with our community in an environment that promotes complete health in spirit, mind and body.   “It was established as a community service event but it also provides an opportunity for both our organizations to serve our members and further the missions of both the Y and the Davie Chamber.” Said Carolyn McManamy, President of the Davie County Chamber of Commerce.

“The Y is committed to healthy living for the entire family. We’re excited to partner with the Davie Chamber to provide resources for the community to learn about wellness options,” shared Chris Brady, Executive Director of the Davie Family YMCA. “The first step in any wellness journey is knowledge, and the For Your Health Expo is a great place to gather information about making healthy choices for your whole family.”
