The Schlessman YMCA’s Parkinson’s High Energy Exercise class uses regular exercise to help reduce or delay symptoms of the disease plus helps keep participants strong and connected.
A challenge for some seniors living with Parkinson’s is safe and reliable transportation to the class. A Little Help, a local non-profit organization, has stepped up to assist class participants who need transportation assistance. These individuals are able to attend the Parkinson’s class weekly with the support of dedicated volunteer, Kathy Cravy, who transports them to class.
“The Parkinson’s exercise class makes such a difference in helping me feel better and stay active” said member Nancy, “I am only able to attend thanks to A Little Help volunteer, Kathy”.
