Mayo Clinic gives a grant to support our Forever Strong Program
June 30, 2017 – Rochester, Minn. — Melanie Brennan announced today that ExercisABILITIES received an important grant from Mayo Clinic for the support of their Forever Strong Medical Fitness and Rehabilitation Program.
“Without donations from the community such as this, many of our clients with difficult physical abilities and medical conditions would not be able to afford access to this level of assistance with their ongoing rehabilitation and wellness. The assistance that we provide is no longer covered by insurance but is greatly needed by all of our clients on a regular, lifelong, and long term basis”, said Dr. Melanie Brennan, CEO/Founder.
