Dr. Bob Kostelnik joined over one hundred YMCA CEOs, staff, and board members from across the state for the Legislative Advocacy Days of the Pennsylvania State Alliance of YMCAs.

The group convened in Harrisburg for two days in September 2010 to ask legislators to support initiatives that the YMCA sponsors to reduce childhood obesity and to support child care and after school programs.

Pennsylvania has the highest number of YMCAs of any state, and the YMCA is the state’s largest provider of child care.

Kostelnik is an associate professor of Sport Management at IUP and current board president of the Greensburg YMCA.
