Tre takes an hour-long train ride from his home in North Philly to Steve's Club King of Prussia where he loves to workout. Tre is just 19, but he has seen more violence in those years than many of us will see in a lifetime.
"If you want to go to the corner store, it's safer not to go," said Tre. "In the summertime it's the worst. That's when the murder rate rises. I've seen my cousin get shot and killed."
Tre has been a member at SC-KoP for four years and has been selected to go to our week long Leadership Camp three times, which speaks to his character and dedication to the program.
"Steve's Club takes me away from the streets," said Tre. "It's good for me because a lot of the workouts that we do you can compare to real life. You never wanna give up."
