- Fitness program that works for ALL abilities
When living with mental health challenges, an individual can face any number of barriers including but not limited to social anxiety, low self-esteem, and limited income. Emma O’Connor and Janene Ford,
founders of Strong Sisters, share the vision that engaging in physical activity is a dynamic tool to help someone reach their potential both physically and mentally. Emma and Janene are excited for this new program and are driven to ensure its success because EVERYONE has the right to be an active, equal member of their community.
