Al loves coming to the Y and prides himself on his daily workouts.  Al was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder that has challenged his physical abilities for many years.  He feels so much better after coming to the Y because he “gets to see all the smiling faces and friendly people”.

Al is a single dad to his beautiful 12 year old daughter, Emma.  He knows that exercise makes him a more patient father.   Because of his disability, Al is on a limited fixed income and would not be able to participate in the Y, if it were not for the help he receives through financial assistance.

“I want to thank everyone who helps raise money so that I can come here every day.”
