Guest Speaker Jennifer Phillips, Keshet's Acting Chief Executive Officer 
 
Keshet is a Skokie Valley Rotary Club's Great Recipient.
 
Club Fit is Keshet’s newest adult program to promote healthy habits and staying active for people with disabilities. Currently, this program is being offered virtually, but will become a weekly activity of GADOL, Keshet’s adult day program located in Skokie. Led by Keshet’s nurses, each week offers an educational lesson and an exercise challenge. Participants track their physical activity and win prizes for reaching goals.
 
Physical activity and healthy lifestyles are critical for all people and especially for adults with disabilities. 
Keshet’s commitment to health and wellness is part of enabling adults with disabilities to live meaningful lives in our community. Club Fit was launched in response to the COVID-19 stay-at-home order and Keshet’s need to provide services remotely. The program has been so successful and popular that we plan on offering it to the 36 members of Keshet’s adult day/vocational program when we are able to re-open.
