J&J actively gives back both time and money to events, organizations, and charities in the areas we serve. A share of our earnings is dedicated to this purpose as part of our commitment to being an active and responsible member of our communities.
May 22, 2019 (EFFINGHAM, IL) – J&J Ventures Gaming announces a donation of $8,000 to MyMemoryWorx in partnership with the Southeastern Community Foundation.
The donation will fund the development of a new exercise program dedicated to supporting the needs of those with Parkinson’s disease. The initial exercise program, to be held at the Workman Sports Complex, will be a Rock Steady Boxing class and will be available exclusively to those with Parkinson’s. Attendees are not required to be a member of the sports complex to participate in the class.
“On behalf of the Parkinson’s Support Group and the waiting list of 20 people, we want to thank you for bringing this powerful program to our area,” said MyMemoryWorx CEO, Kelly Willenborg.
MyMemoryWorx provides memory loss screenings, brain health education, and non-pharmacological interventions particularly focused on those with impairment or a neurological disease.
