The Jewish Home Family’s Parkinson’s Center will host endurance athlete Larry Grogin on Thursday, November 5, at 4 p.m., on Zoom. Mr. Grogin, 65, of Franklin Lakes, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s recently, is a top endurance athlete who has competed in 28 Ironman triathalons and 300 marathons. His program, “Shoot for the Stars and Hit the Moon — Fighting Parkinson’s with Exercise,” will be presented free but registration is required at jewishhomefamily.org/grogin.
“We want people to know that a diagnosis of Parkinson’s does not mean you can’t still do what you love, accomplish remarkable things, and inspire others,” Carol Silver Elliott, the Jewish Home Family’s president & CEO, said.
The event will kick-off the return of the JHF’s Parkinson’s support groups in a virtual setting and will recognize the array of Parkinson’s therapies offered by the Jewish Home’s Center for Parkinson’s Disease (including boxing and wellness classes being given virtually).
