Tuesday Gov. Doyle announced the top achieving centers that took part in the governor's challenge. It's a program aimed at encouraging Wisconsin adults and kids to lead healthier lives.

One of those centers named as a “top achiever” was the Stevens Point YMCA. Associate Executive Director Troy Durkee says that's what they strive for.

"We're more than just the facility we're in today. We take all of our philosophy into our youth programs, into our pre-schools," says Durkee.

Other YMCAs named to the top achieving list were Waukesha's and Milwaukee's.
