Five years ago, Ivan had a stroke. He was in a wheel chair for 6 months. By the time he got around to walking, he tested how far he could go. Two years ago, it took him 3 hours to walk a 5k, but he still made it. Around that time, Ivan started doing personal training sessions with Carolyn here at the East Shore Y.
The picture below was taken at the East Shore Y just after Ivan got back from completing a 5k walk with Carolyn, and he did it in 48 minutes! All the hard work that Ivan has been putting in has paid off. Carolyn’s goal for Ivan is to get him back to running again. With this type of progress he will be there before we know it.
Keep up the great work Ivan, the East Shore Y community is proud of you!
