ACAC PRESENTS CHECK FOR $6,450
On October 5th, the Mid-Atlantic region of the Arthritis Foundation accepted a check presented to them by General Manager Joyce Steed for $6,450.
The donation came from a promotion offered in September. The promotion allowed community members to access the area acac facility at a special deal of $25 for 25 days. The entire $25 fee went to the Arthritis Foundation.
The Arthritis Foundation was chosen due to the fact acac opened a new aquatics center earlier in the year that included a warm water pool. Several acac instructors were certified by the Arthritis Foundation to teach a water class in the warm water that specifically deals with the needs of the arthritic. “Having this pool and offering this class has had a great impact on us here at acac and the members that we are now able to serve,” said Steed.
Arthritis Foundation managers say the donation will provide funding for both research and program support.
