My Y Story...


“Don’t give up on me because I will never give up on myself.” Words that Dale Johnson lives by every day. Dale is severely disabled from a brain stem injury that was caused by a car accident in July of 1973 that left him unconscious for three months. Forty years after the accident, Dale still makes his way to the Broadview Y almost every day to see his Y friends. He is grateful for the time he gets with the staff that help guide him along through his workout. “I need the YMCA for the emotional as well as the physical aspects.” ~Dale
