"Magic Johnson was the ultimate professional when he visited the YMCA of Hartford. He posed with over 200 people for individual pictures, answered all their questions and then, without any prompting, raised over 40k with the live auction. In my mind, Magic represents what's best in our superstar athletes. He uses his resources and status to give back to those less fortunate while simultaneously building a financial empire. That is why we honored him as a YMCA Champion, not just for his greatness on the court but for the example he demonstrates off the court."
