Breast Cancer STRETCH Class Offered this SpringPosted Dec. 7, 2012
The Kent State University at Stark Fitness and Recreation Center will begin offering a Breast Cancer STRETCH class during the spring semester. Classes will be held from 10 – 11 a.m. each Tuesday and Thursday from January 15 through April 18, 2013, in the Kent State Stark Physical Education Building, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.
Breast Cancer STRETCH (Strength Through Recreation Exercise Togetherness Caring Health), instructed by Stacie Humm, academic program coordinator, is open to the campus community and the general public. There is no cost for this non-credit class and participation is on a first-come basis, as class size is limited. Pre-registration and a physician’s clearance are required for participation. No classes will be held when the university is closed due to weather emergencies, holidays or during spring break.
This class will incorporate stretching, muscular endurance and cardiovascular activity to help survivors rehabilitate both mentally and physically from the effects of breast cancer. Special attention will be given to education about lymphedema, range of motion and strength issues associated with non/surgical cancer treatments. Participants of any fitness level are encouraged to attend, including those who may need to sit during classes.
To register or for more information, call the Kent State Stark Fitness and Recreation Center at 330-244-3392, or email Stacie Humm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
