Roy says, “Every hour I spend on the Y has a significant impact on peoples’ lives. And every minute I’m enjoying the Y fitness opportunities with others, I am reminded that the Y is the great equalizer: When everyone puts on their gym clothes, they’re the same. Income, social status and family problems no longer stigmatize you.”
