#ADERSTRONG! In 2022 our beloved Fred Ader was diagnosed with ALS, a neurodegenerative disease. Fred is the first person to make you laugh & smile when you walk into the gym.
He’s a husband, father, grandfather, coach, mentor, phenomenal friend, and loves like no other. He’s dedicated more than 25 years of his life to uplifting, supporting, and leading young athletes to their full potential. He is the reason for ARVC and we love him for that. We continue to support him and his family as they navigate his diagnosis. Through the efforts of our incredible ARVC community, over $10,000 has been raised to support Coach Fred in his fight against ALS. Red for Fred t-shirts & donations are open and available.
