Steady and Strong Parkinson's Program

The Metropolitan YMCAs of Mississippi 's Steady and Strong Parkinson's Program is supported by a community grant from the Parkinson’s Foundation. This program is offered at NO COST to Parkinson’s patients and their families and has 32 current participants on the roster. 

While individuals may come for exercise, they will find so much more than that. Come to try out the class!
