HOUSTON & PHILADELPHIA, February 17, 2015 – The Cigna Foundation announced today that it is awarding a $150,000 World of Difference grant that will enable the Philadelphia Freedom Valley and Greater Houston YMCAs to launch their Enhance®Fitness Program within their communities. EnhanceFitness is an evidence-based physical activity program proven to increase the physical, mental and social functioning of older adults – particularly those with arthritis. The Philadelphia and Houston Y Associations will be piloting the program at several of their area YMCA facilities, with the goal of eventually bringing it to other branches and even into the community at locations other than YMCAs.
