Guernsey Grant to Sponsor Free Fitness Classes for Veterans

Healthy Cedar Valley Coalition, in collaboration with Nikki Carrion of FitXPress, has been awarded a Guernsey Charitable Foundation grant to provide health-promotion resources for Black Hawk County veterans, their spouses, and/or caretakers for the 2018-2019 year. The grant will allow Nikki to conduct fitness assessments and classes that respond to veterans' physical and psychological challenges. We need your help to spread the word! Please talk to anyone you know who might benefit and call Nikki Carrion at 319-404-4219 with any questions you have.
 
The grant will get underway this fall with an Introductory Session for Health Promotion Classes on September 4, 2018, 12 noon to 1 pm at the Commission of Veteran Affairs Office, Pinecrest, 1407 Independence Avenue, Waterloo. Vets, spouses, and caretakers will be introduced to the class goals and procedures. There are no age restrictions! Every effort will be made to answer questions in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Drop in and see how you can benefit!
 
Health Promotion Classes begin on September 11, 2018, and will be held from 12 noon to 1 pm every Tuesday and Thursday. Exercises will incorporate yoga, Pilates, and other forms that promote stress reduction, mental clarity, and physical fitness.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to say "thank you" again to the Guernsey Charitable Foundation and Kevin Dill, Director of the Black Hawk County Commission of Veteran Affairs, for their belief in this project and its potential to make a difference for so many people in our community.
