Body Recall relies in part on the generosity and donations of friends like you. Your donations can be specifically allocated to support any of the following:
Falls-Recovery Demonstration Tour
As a fitness and flexibility training program, Body Recall has been in the forefront of teaching fall-recovery programs for older populations as part of its fitness training. With increasing concern over falls and resulting hospitalizations, funding is needed to support minivan travel throughout Kentucky to educate seniors and demonstrate falls-recovery techniques for older and disabled populations. Funding will support travel expenses for the demo team.
Teacher Training Scholarships
Body Recall offers in-depth training for people from a variety of backgrounds, to provide low-impact fitness classes to target populations in the communities where they live. Scholarship money for additional teachers will increase the availability of physical activity opportunities, especially in rural areas that often have few options. Body Recall training classes last one full week, and the cost is $950, which includes food and lodging in Berea, Kentucky, where the training classes are held. Body Recall is interested in training new teachers here at Headquarters and in regional locations throughout the country.
Subsidized Student Enrollment
Many of our students are impacted by Strokes, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Arthritis, and other chronic conditions, and are living on small or fixed incomes. Student fees are already kept low ($41-$80 for thirty classes), but the ability to subsidize or waive class fees will further reduce barriers to participation, and encourage more people to engage in lifetime fitness and a healthier lifestyle.
Youth Fitness and Intergenerational Health Awareness Campaign
Obesity, Diabetes, Hypertension are reaching epidemic proportions among young and old alike. Your donations will be used to support educational workshops, and classes to address these issues both here in Kentucky and elsewhere across the country.
General Operating Fund
Donations will be used to purchase much needed equipment, supplies and materials to support our expanding efforts.
One of Body Recall’s goals is to create a holistic center for health, wellness and expanded trainings. Money for the capital campaign will be used to build onsite lodging and classrooms and the addition of a therapeutic pool.
