National Athletic Training Month

March 4, 2014 - Barb Barrett
March is celebrating National Athletic Training Month and this was truly expressed when I visited the SuperStars Fitness Challenge at the Eastern Lycoming YMCA Saturday morning. Those kids were so excited and so happy to be there. They raised their own money so they can continue to take the class every week. There are two classes, and no one gets turned away. There is such a need, that other organizations and Y's are looking at the Muncy Y as a mentor to start other fitness programs elsewhere for special needs children.

They all have a chance to take a lead and participate as much as they can. In their hearts and minds they can be just as much an athlete as anyone can. And I admire their caretakers who come with them to guide them, and work with them and help them build confidence. And thank you to Diana Logan and the aids, her daughters and volunteers who make this program happen every week. Not every community has this kind of support to boost the morale of these kids and their families. And to have them give back so much is truly remarkable. They are more than just SUPER STARS. They're HEROES.
