The Enterprise — Michael Koff

Pedaling away on a stationery bike, Ryan Venter takes a break from his usual work and meetings, while Liz Cifarelli, group exercise coordinator, advises him. Venter, the new YMCA director, runs regularly at the Y, and completed his first marathon last fall. The mission of the Capital District YMCA — originally called the Young Men’s Christian Association — is “to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.”
