The YMCA in Cadillac is giving people living with a disability free access to classes on Saturday, August 17.
Some people with disabilities might struggle to get involved in certain exercise and activities, so the Y is hosting an accessibility day this weekend. On Saturday from noon to 3:00pm, the facility is offering swimming lessons, sensory yoga classes or family cardio drumming classes.
The Y says the goal is to provide more opportunities for everyone in the community.
Paul King, membership and marketing director of the YMCA in Cadillac, said, “What we really want to be able to do is show them that you can do whatever you want to, you can be healthy, you can go swimming, you can participate in a group exercise class, and we want to show the community that we are doing that here and that we welcome them here at the Y.”
On Friday, August 16, The Four will share the story of the family who started Accessibility Day at the YMCA.
