On Saturday, July 22, the Hunterdon County YMCA invites the community to join them in Strong for Sam, a Fitness Fundraiser at the Deer Path Branch showing support for a local family, the Ahimovics. Samantha (Sam) Ahimovic has been diagnosed with Stage 4 kidney cancer. She and her husband Andrew are both part of the HCY family. Sam was an adult group fitness instructor from 2010 - 2015, teaching Group Power and Tabata and Andrew was a Youth Program Instructor from 2005 - 2011. They reside in Hunterdon County with their 3 young boys. According to Teri Saccal, event organizer and Director of Healthy Living, "Our goal is to come together to show Sam and her family that we support them. Sam is strong; her motto is 'I Can and I Will.' We support Sam and believe She Can and She Will."
