Stories to inspire you!


More than 50 years ago, Skip joined the Y looking for a place to become healthier after College.
After joining the Allentown Y, Skip met mentors, cheerleaders and friends who helped him stay motivated.  In just a few short months, Skip went from walking for fitness to running.  Over the next few years, Skip was able to lose ten pounds each year while keeping the weight off.
Today, Skip is a fixture of the Y, helping motivate others like those who first motivated him to keep active.  He is an engaged member of the Y’s SilverSneakers program, and credits the Y with his lifelong wellness.  Skip reflects, “The Y means everything to me. Finding the Y changed my life. My physical health and mental health would not be the same without the YMCA!” 
Thanks to the Y’s subsidized community needs programming like SilverSneakers, Skip has a lifelong community to belong, connect with others and thrive. Day in and day out, the Y provides service solutions meeting key social needs.  Thanks to our staff, volunteers and community supporters, we provide opportunities for all neighbors to build a brighter future, side by side.
