Young Member Wants to Join the Military, But First Needs to Get Fit

This is Riley, waiting for the plane that will take him to Basic Training.

Riley joined the Lose Big Challenge this year with his parents. His goal was to lose enough weight to be fit enough to board this plane.

He joined Coach Carrie's team at 234.5lbs. Last Friday, Feb. 19th he weighed in at 219lbs. On Tuesday, Feb. 23rd, he weighed in at an astounding 209lbs and was able to leave for Basic Training!

Riley reminds us that if you want something bad enough, you will go out and get it! The Y is honored to be a part of his journey. We are so happy Riley reached his goal and wish him the best of luck at Basic Training.

The Y is always there for whatever dream or goal you may have, no matter who you are, how old you are, or where you are from. Join the Y today and let us offer you the support you seek. How can we bridge the gap between today and a brighter tomorrow?

Good luck Riley! We can't wait to hear from you!
