“I love the YMCA! I get to be ‘ME’!”
JJ Arbib
YMCA member

JJ Arbib is a 12 year old student, sledge hockey player and triathlete. Dedicated to his chosen sports and to his independence, JJ spends many hours travelling from school, to the rink, track and pool – all while carting his own gear behind his wheelchair! His Mom, Melanie Arbib, an employee of the Brookfield Residential YMCA, says the YMCA has allowed JJ to continue to be independent, keep active and thrive in his sports – all which contribute to his overall well-being.
