Parkinson's Program

Fight Parkinson's Disease With Exercise

The Hawaii chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation donated $10,000 in support of the YMCA's Parkinson Disease program. The program, developed by Kevin Lockette based on the MOVE-IT project, works on improving cardiovascular endurance, strength, flexibility and balance. This generous grant has allowed the YMCA of Honolulu to develop and expand the Parkinson Disease program from Windward to all our branches.
