The funds recently helped the organization purchase new automatic doors in support of their Supported Therapeutic Exercise Program (STEP). This life-changing program provides supported therapeutic exercise and access to specialized equipment for low-income clients who are living with a disability. In addition, STEP offers personalized exercise programs, weekly one-on-one athletic therapy support and social engagement activities – all with the goal of helping clients increase their independence and connection to a group of individuals with similar experiences.
