Help America’s Healing Heroes.

 

Healthy New Albany and Mission Essential are proud to sponsor the Second Annual Honor Ride Ohio to help America’s Healing Heroes on Memorial Day weekend, May 28, 2016, to raise money and promote awareness for Ride 2 Recovery – a non-profit organization which improves the physical and mental well-being of injured veterans with cycling as a means of rehabilitation.

The ride will start and end at the Heit Center in New Albany, touring the scenic countryside of Central Ohio in routes of 12, 35 or 65 miles.

To date, over one million veterans have suffered serious injuries during the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts.  The need for programs to help these veterans is staggering.  Ride 2 Recovery is one of those important programs – a non-profit organization which improves the physical and mental well-being of injured veterans with cycling as a means of rehabilitation.

Heit Center programs open to all

The Philip Heit Center for Healthy New Albany is fully open at 150 W. Main St. and so are the various classes organizers hoped to offer.

The health-related programs also are open to anyone, even people who live outside of the community.

“People do not have to be a member of (the) fitness center or a New Albany resident to take classes,” said Abbey Brooks, program director for the center. “The Heit Center is open to everyone and classes are the same price for everyone.”

Classes began this month on such topics as cooking, nutrition, exercise and wellness, CPR and athletics injuries.

Brooks said the programs are scheduled by the nonprofit Healthy New Albany.
