The Cheyenne Family YMCA VA Adaptive Sports Program Open House

Event Dates and Times

The Cheyenne Family YMCA 1426 East Lincolnway, Cheyenne WY
The Cheyenne Family YMCA is honored to announce that we have received a second year of funding from the VA Adaptive Sports program. The funds will be used to run Chair Yoga, Strength Training and Bocce Ball for Disabled Veterans. The program will run Tuesdays and Thursdays Oct. 2, 2017 through Sept. 13, 2018 from 1-2PM and is free for all Disabled Veterans. We will rotate these activities and have a few break weeks in between quarters. Laramie County is home to some 3,900 Disabled Veterans. Programs such as VA Adaptive Sports are tremendously beneficial to these men and women who have served our country so well.
We will introduce our VA Adaptive Sports program with an Open House/Health Fair on Tuesday Oct. 3rd 12:30-3PM. In addition to Chair Yoga, Strength Training and Bocce Ball we will also offer a free session of our Neuro-Fit class 2-3:15PM. Neuro-Fit is an exercise class designed to help people dealing with Parkinson’s, MS, TBI and other neurodegenerative illnesses.
Also on Tuesday Oct. 2nd 12:30-2PM we will feature our Diabetes Prevention Program. YDPP is focused on those most at risk of developing type II diabetes and incurring the health care costs of managing that chronic condition the rest of their lives. We are currently putting together a list of eligible participants so that we can schedule another class. In our first 3 classes overall 90% of the participants successfully completed the year-long program and are now on their way to leading healthier lives.
