After a diagnosis of Parkinson’s, Bob was ready to do whatever it took to keep an active lifestyle.

“Parkinson’s can take over your life but exercise is known to slow the symptoms,” said Bob. After participating in Pedaling for Parkinson’s, Bob’s background in teaching and coaching kicked in, inspiring him to be part of more.

“The Y is forever searching to meet the needs of its members. I thought ‘I need to be a part of this, I need to volunteer,’” said Bob.

Bob started coaching, using his philosophy of leaving things better than you found it.
“We are all making improvements,” said Bob. “It feels great to give back.”
