Red Triangle Award Winner 

The Red Triangle Legacy Award recognizes long and admirable service, outstanding contributions, and achievement in the community. Those achievements honor the YMCA’s legacy of helping people grow healthier in spirit, mind, and body. The recipient’s actions have visibly and undeniably strengthened our community.

The definition of a mentor is a person who can support, advise, and guide you. They take the time to get to know you and the challenges you’re facing and then use their expertise and understanding to help you. Rob has been a mentor and a friend to many, including our current and previous YMCA CEOs, as well as many volunteers who have followed in his footsteps for board leadership. Rob’s leadership has been invaluable throughout the years. Rob is a valued and long-time leader of the YMCA of the Virginia Peninsulas; his leadership began in the late 90’s and has been consistent ever since. 

Rob Brown, Sr., a true pillar of the YMCA of the Virginia Peninsulas, has made a lasting impact that will continue to shape our community. His selfless dedication and unwavering commitment have made our YMCA stronger and more vibrant. We are forever grateful for his contributions.
