My Y Story...


Nine year old Charlie has been a member since he was just a few months old. His mom had joined the Y so she could exercise and meet other new mothers. Charlie has been involved in preschool classes, swimming and started participating in youth sports when he was 4 years old. Charlie was very excited when his dad Mike had decided to be become a volunteer flag football coach for his team. Mike also enjoyed their special time together.Tragically, Mike suffered a cerebral hemorrhage on Wed. March 2nd, 2011. He underwent immediate surgery at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay. Mike has a very long road ahead of him, but he continues to work hard every day and his spirits are positive. The Y has worked with Charlie’s mom to ensure Charlie is able to participate in youth sports by making sure Charlie is on a team with friends that can help transport him. This has helped to provide Charlie the opportunity to continue with his regular activities. Mike even made it to two flag football games this fall to cheer Charlie on. Mike hopes to continue to be able to make it to Charlie’s games and to someday be back on the field being a part of youth sports.
