Many of you know the Y’s Sports Director, Coach Pat O’Hagan. On Thursday June 5, Pat’s son Patrick was injured in a freak softball accident and suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury with bleeding and swelling. He required immediate surgery and now faces a second surgery along with a long road ahead of therapy and recovery.

Our members who know Coach Pat have expressed concern and want to know what they can do to help. Below is a link to an online fundraising initiative created by friends of the O’Hagan family.

So far, the fund has raised over $50,000. If you wish to contribute via Patrick’s online giving website, please click here.

Save the Date

There is an evening fundraising dinner scheduled for Patrick on
Wednesday, July 16 from 7-11pm at the Brownstone in Paterson.
Tickets are $55 and may be purchased during regular business hours at
the Y’s front desk. Cash or check only please!

It is our priority at the Y to provide support and encouragement for Pat and
his family during this time.

Thanks to all of our members for their concern, thoughts and prayers.
