September 5, 2023

Story Summary

This summer, as part of their longstanding partnership, the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation announced a $25,000 grant to Shriners Children’s New England. The grant will help to enhance their ‘BFit’ Power-Based Exercise Program, an initiative catering to patients afflicted with neuromuscular conditions, such as Cerebral Palsy. The grant allows patients to closely collaborate with local physical therapy and exercise science students hailing from neighboring colleges.

This partnership facilitates patients’ engagement in exercises meticulously designed to accelerate their walking pace, improve the quality of their movements, and cultivate an active lifestyle within their home environments. A longstanding beneficiary of the Joy in Childhood Foundation, Shriners Children’s New England has received close to $100,000 in support since 2017.
