In Dedication to...

CHRISTINA MARIE MIHOS

1975 – 1992

A TIMELESS LEGACY

In honor of Christina and the Mihos family, Old Colony YMCA’s Camp Stoughton will now carry Christina’s name. Christina was the true embodiment of the Y’s four core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Her spirit and legacy will continue to guide our mission.

 

CHRISTINA MARIE MIHOS (1975 – 1992)

Christina is described as a “little angel with a personality to match.” Her life was tragically cut short because of an inoperable brain tumor. Christina was an exceptional student despite undergoing nine surgeries and undergoing chemotherapy. In honor of Christina, her family and friends established the Christina Marie Mihos Youth Foundation with a mission to support the youth in the areas of education, medical research and quality of life. As a leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y promises to work tirelessly in Christina’s name to nurture children and teens, improve community health and well-being in our neighborhood.

OUR VOW

  • Camp Christina vows to bring our youth together with activities that teach core values, conflict resolution and leadership skills. 
  • Kids have fun while building self-confidence, appreciating teamwork and gaining independence. 
  • Camp Christina activities allow kids to appreciate nature, explore challenges, exert energy, be creative, and create better understandings of our many cultures.

 

CAMP CHRISTINA IS DEDICATED TO PROVIDING AN ENRICHING, MEANINGFUL SUMMER EXPERIENCE, SUPPORTING GROWTH IN SPIRIT, MIND, AND BODY OF EVERY CHILD.

THANK YOU!

Thank you, Mihos family for your commitment to youth development.

Together,  we are all helping  expanding opportunity.
