The national YMCA presented Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Longboat Key, with the Congressional Champion Award Wednesday for his work supporting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The awards breakfast was held in Washington, D.C., as part of the YMCA’s annual National Advocacy Days, when nearly 300 YMCA leaders from across the country meet in the nation’s capital. Laura Gilbert, the interim president and chief executive officer of the Sarasota YMCA, met with Buchanan to discuss the organization's impact in Southwest Florida.
