To the Editor:
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you this New Year to NYA Sports & Fitness for all it has done and continues to do for our community. NYA Sports & Fitness frequently goes above and beyond what is expected or generally known. For their efforts they are owed an offering of gratitude.
In 2016 alone NYA Sports & Fitness, in addition to its regular activities, offered Newtown residents:
The Community Wellness Series featuring area specialists and physicians speaking on ACL Injury Prevention;
Brain Health and Memory and Movement Improvement;
the Spark After School Program for third through sixth graders;
the Newtown Yoga Festival;
a boot camp for Ben’s Lighthouse in preparation for Ragnar Cape Cod;
the Unified Sports Soccer Team;
Radiant Runners for third to sixth grade girls;
the construction and hosting of a drop-off box of school supplies for children in Hartford;
The Newtown Youth Wrestling Association;
and senior-focused fitness programs.
We, and no doubt many others, are thankful for the opportunities NYA Sports & Fitness has brought to our community and we look forward to more in 2017.
