Until the recent pandemic, Adults in Motion was one of the most socially engaging ways to spend a day; engaging in activities together, sharing ideas, and learning about one another.  This was all something that had happened so organically.  We grew together and became so beautifully intertwined in each other’s worlds- staff and participants alike.
