Ben and Rudy

Ben and Rudy found the Y as a safe haven for their family after Ben was recovering from a stroke at 41 years old.   

Rudy points out the value in having a diverse and welcoming community where our mission is to strive for a healthy body, mind and spirit; “The Ymca, it’s been the best. It’s a welcoming and opening community for our family. Two Fathers married to each other, with a little girl. Everyone has been incredible to us.”
