Volunteer at MS Swim!
Help stretch adults with multiple sclerosis at the YMCA
posted about 7 years ago
I run a service site called Multiple Sclerosis Swim through the Shriver Center. Transportation is provided in the fashionable white vans you see around campus to and from the Catonsville YMCA. Once there we float and stretch adults with multiple sclerosis. Training is provided! After stretching is complete, the volunteers and MS participants get to enjoy some snacks together.
As MS can be a debilitating disease, exercise can help improve one's mobility while socialization can help an individual combat depression which a large majority of diagnosed individuals experience.
This site is great for Pre-PT students or simply anyone who wants to get involved in the nearby community. Hurry and contact the Shriver Center to sign up from Prac96! There are VERY few spots left for this semester! (If you miss out on this opportunity this semester, fear not for this program has been around for 40+ years so there's always next year!)
