Body In Motion Program
Duke has been a part of the Y's Body in Motion program for over two years. Body in Motion serves those with Parkinson's and others with conditions affecting mobility and balance.
Duke was diagnosed with Parkinson's 20 years ago. He had a pretty good reason to start the program--he wanted to walk his daughter down the aisle! "The comradery among all these guys is what I like more than anything. You get introduced to people with some of the same problems you have. Last fall, doctor said 'whatever you’re doing keep it up'. Coming here to the Y has been a real change in my life." Thanks to the Body In Motion program, Duke was indeed able to walk his daughter down the aisle and hopes to walk his other daughter down the aisle some day soon too.
