Wellness Center

In the mid-1990s, when funds for the Randy Travis Wellness Center, the Rapid City Gymnasium and the Brian Vucurevich Child Development Center addition were being raised, Randy Travis wanted to help. Randy is a friend of a member of the YMCA of Rapid City. While in town to perform a sold out concert, he donated all of the ticket sales to the YMCA expansion. The Randy Travis Wellness Center was named for his generosity.
