Pittsfield: BCC’s Wellness Day slated for Feb. 1


Berkshire Community College’s Physical Therapist Assistant Club will hold its second annual Wellness Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1, at BCC’s Paterson Field House, 1350 West. St.

The event, which is open to individuals of all ages and abilities, will feature free educational booths as well as exercise classes and chair massages ($4 per half-hour exercise class or 10 minute chair massage).

Exercise classes will include Zumba, Pilates, aikido, self-defense, creative dance, and yoga.

Proceeds will benefit Empower SCI, a non-profit corporation that serves the needs of individuals with spinal cord injuries.

Entry to the event is free; however, donations will be accepted.

Last year’s event, which raised approximately $1K, assisted in providing funds for two Berkshire County residents to attend a two-week summer program at Empower SCI Inc.

Wellness Day organizers aim to exceed last year’s profits.
