Roger Godrey steps on the outside of each ring placed on the floor. The exercise helps him relearn to take normal-sized steps.
Bill Coffee, Victor Garcia, instructor Vera Shury, Roger Godfrey, Bobby Black and Fred Taylor run through a routine during a Perky Parkies session in SaddleBrooke earlier this month. The sessions motivate people with Parkinson’s disease to get up and out of the house.
