Kathleen DePiero Memorial YMCA Bubble Blast

5K and Family 1 Mile Fun Run

As a board member of the North Royalton Family YMCA, Kathleen was the driving force behind the creation of the YMCA's 5K Bubble Blast.  From the moment she joined us at the Y, she brought a sense of infectious happiness that permeated the group.  Kathleen brought her passion for helping all families to the YMCA and truly made this successful from the beginning.  Kathleen also embodied all of the YMCA's core values: respect, responsibility, honesty and caring.  Any time Kathleen, Dean and the DePiero family were involved there was such a sense of enjoyment at our events.

The Bubble Blast is now dedicated in her honor and in memory of the incredible impact she had on the Y family and all the proceeds will go to helping families in need through our scholarship fund.
