$2,500 Donation sends 4 to Nationals!

Four young martial artists from the Enterprise YMCA TKD school won individual championships at the 2015 Alabama State Games, the largest Olympic-style competition in the state. Their performance got them invitations to compete at the State Games of America with over 15,000 competitors from 47 states. Accompanied by their parents, the four young athletes traveled to Omaha, Nebraska as the only martial artists representing Alabama at the national tournament. Three of them (Grason Wallace, William Wallace, & Logan Stewmon) earned Silver Medals while Michael Dreilinger won the Gold Medal in the Men's Under 20 Black Belt division and became an SGA National Champion. The examples they set and the funding provided by corporate donations encouraged 6 more YMCA athletes to complete at the 2016 Alabama State Games resulting in three repeat and three new State Champions.
