Bridgewell is thrilled to partner with the Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Foundation to support young adults with autism!
A grant of $7,448 from the Tower Foundation is bringing a new treadmill and recumbent bike to the fitness center at Bridgewell’s new Rosewood Drive Day Habilitation Center in Danvers. This expansive, professional-grade fitness and recreation space features men’s and women’s changing rooms, mirrors, and a growing suite of top-of-line exercise equipment.
Rosewood Drive helps young people with autism successfully transition from school to the adult community and prepare for a healthy and rewarding future.
Participants like Matthew and Hadrian, pictured above, use Rosewood’s fitness center for daily workouts as well as clinical work with a physical therapist. This hub of physical, therapeutic activity is just one component of Rosewood’s holistic program model.
Tracy Sawicki, Executive Director of the Tower Foundation, states, “The Foundation is pleased to support Bridgewell’s Transitional Autism Program. The recreational aspect is just one component of what Bridgewell offers to young adults to help them fully engage in the community.”
Bridgewell also thanks Precision Fitness Equipment for their generosity and helping to bring physical fitness to the young people at Rosewood Drive.
