HOW HAS/DOES C.O.R.E. AFFECT YOUR LIFE?

 C.O.R.E. has changed my life by giving me a place to exercise and train with adaptive exercise equipment outside of a hospital setting. It has also allowed me to see exercise and rehab specialists to receive care beyond medical intervention.  In addition C.O.R.E. is the heart of the disabled community, where people of all ages and from all walks of life come together to work towards maximizing their potential.  It is great to have fellowship with others that share similar life experiences and have common goals. C.O.R.E. has also given a second home to the charity Iā€™m involved with called Triumph Foundation.  It is a place I can refer people to, set up meetings at, and network with others. There is a genuine need for facilities like C.O.R.E in every place that has a population that includes individuals struggling with catastrophic injuries, chronic conditions, or illnesses.  We are so fortunate to have C.O.R.E. in our community.  It has empowered me to improve my quality of life.
