Community Foundation To Launch New Parkinson’s Active Project

The Hull FC Community Foundation will launch a brand new project called ‘Parkinson’s Active’ to support those diagnosed with the condition.

Working in partnership with Parkinson’s UK, the new project aims to support people diagnosed with the disorder, and other neurological conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, by increasing their physical and mental fitness.

It is important for those with neurological conditions to maintain a regular routine of exercise, helping maintain strength, flexibility, balance and cognitive acuity.

Parkinson’s Active, which will launch in September, will incorporate light gym activities, ball games, yoga, pilates and more to encourage those with the condition to enhance their physical wellness, fostering good mental health outcomes at the same time.

The launch event will take place at the Allam Sports Centre at the University of Hull (1-3pm) on Tuesday 26th September.

Sessions will then take place on a weekly basis on Tuesday afternoons at the same venue (12-2pm).

It’s free to attend, too. Participants just need to register to attend here.
