L.E.K is proud to announce their continued partnership with Partners for Youth with Disabilities (PYD). PYD’s mission is to empower youth with disabilities to reach their full potential by providing transformative mentoring programs, youth development opportunities, and inclusion expertise. They motivate youth to reach their personal, educational, and career goals, and guide organizations in becoming more inclusive.
Last year L.E.K. and PYD brought together ~30 people to play dodgeball. In accordance with the workout theme, the groups decided to kick off 2018 with a 360-circuit class at EverybodyFights. Very few people knew what to expect coming in, but there was a lot of excitement as everyone first arrived and picked out their boxing gloves. Once everyone was ready, the instructor started to walk through the circuit activities, which varied widely from biking, to rowing, to a variety of boxing exercises. He placed people in the different stations and we were off, bouncing between the 10 activities for about 2 minutes each. Throughout the activities were many high-fives, sweating, and pump-up songs. Sweaty and tired, the group gathered for some pictures and Gatorade, with lots of discussion around how fun, yet challenging the class was. Everyone agreed that there would definitely be another event next year!
