MOUNT VERNON — When Molisa Martin was looking for a way to start a new fitness program for the Knox County Board of Developmental Disabilities, she didn’t have to look far.
Mount Vernon Nazarene University was more than willing to help.
“Bodies in Motion” kicked off Thursday at the Donoho Recreation Center at MVNU, featuring dozens of special individuals working with instructors and Cougar athletes. The program is organized by the Knox County Board’s Healthy Living program.
“We’ve already had the healthy food program,” Martin said. “Now, they want to add the physical part of it. It would never be possible without (MVNU Assistant Athletic Director) Paul McNeal and the athletics department.”
