Change Someone’s Tomorrow, Today
YMCA Annual Campaign
Florencio sits on the bleachers with a cane across his lap as he cheers for his son, Matthew, during his first basketball game of the season. Florencio is 31 years old and had multiple strokes that left him partially paralyzed.
Matthew is a typical 10-year-old who loves to play sports with his cousins and friends. Yet, when Matthew was six years old, he was overweight, shy and had anxiety being around others. After his father had his first stroke, young Matthew was trying to process why his dad couldn’t play catch with him anymore. Playing basketball, soccer and NFL flag football at the YMCA helped him fill that void.
Now, Matthew is no longer shy and participates as a team leader, always encouraging his team with his positive spirit. When seeing him interact with his teammates and having fun on the court, no one could ever tell that he once felt out of place.
