Opportunity Description:

Volunteer to help improve the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s Disease.  We have been offering this non-contact boxing adaptive fitness & cognitive skills program (Parkinson’s-specific group classes) in NE Calgary since 2016.  Join us either 1, 2 or 3 days per week for 1.5 hours each visit.  We are looking for someone who has a good understanding of movement/physical fitness there is no requirement for a boxing background.  The role will require partnering with participants at times and although it is a great deal of fun and feels exhilarating, this can be physically and mentally demanding.  Our participants range from 50 to 85 years of age and we have two different levels.  Level 2 (more advanced fitness-wise) Mon/Wed/Fri 10:00 am to 11:00 am and Level 1 (low impact/slower paced) Tues/Thurs 10:00 am to 11:00 am.  This program runs year-round with the exception of an August month- long shutdown.  In August 2023 we were featured in The Globe And Mail https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/alberta/article-parkinsons-exercise-calgary-gym/ Also, here is a link to a 2023 short documentary by CBC NEWS highlighting Grizzly Strides, please note the two levels were shown combined.   https://drive.google.com/file/d/14voZjnbA-4DpI53wkSQropU8oJ5yZaeV/view?usp=drive_web
