About

We need volunteers to assist participants in a free water exercise program which is designed for those adults who cannot get exercise on land due to mobility restrictions due to Parkinson's Disease, MS, RA, stroke, knee or hip replacement, ALS, fibromyalgia or any other cause. Some participants need help in the dressing room, some need help getting to the pool and some need help while in the water. Your help will allow participants to greatly improve the quality of their lives via exercise and socialization.

We meet Wednesdays from 1:00-3:00 PM at the Ocean County YMCA from mid September until mid June. The first hour we are in the pool for water exercise and the second hour we have a socail in a meeting room adjacent to the pool with refreshments and conversation.

Volunteers do not have to commit to come every week but to come whenever they can.

For more information, call Pat Urso at 732-793-0246 or e mail her at urso137@optonline.net

We also can accommodate more participants, so, tell those that have mobility restrictions to contact us and fill out an application.
