Anthony H.

Mel Korum Family YMCA

After losing his job, Anthony was in need of spiritual, mental, and physical replenishment. After spending the last ten years focusing on his career, education, and family, he had very little time for himself. His health suffered as a result, but after his wife suggested he begin going to the Y and helped by getting him a membership. Anthony knew the benefits of exercise and wanted to learn to swim, but had an extreme fear of water.

"From the very beginning my experience at the Y was nothing short of a miracle," he said. He began to not only begin to get back into shape physically, but also mentally, and spiritually. 

"I am blessed to have developed much needed friendships and kinship with so many great people, I have learned to swim, and am physically in a better place."
