ALAMOSA — The Larry Holder Exercise and Cancer Survivorship program is still accepting participants through Friday, Sept. 8, for this fall’s session.

All cancer survivors ages 18 years or older are welcome regardless of gender, type, or stage of cancer. There is no cost to the participant but completing the entire 12 weeks of the study is crucial to ensure accurate research data is obtained. The study consists of one week of pre-testing by appointment, followed by 10 weeks of exercise programming, with post-testing starting the week of Nov. 13.

This program offers cancer survivors in the San Luis Valley the opportunity to participate in an individualized exercise program conducted in a group setting which meets three times per week.

Now in its fifth year, this program continues to offer a place where participants can work toward their personal fitness goals in a non-judgmental setting while enjoying a support network of fellow cancer survivors.

The program also provides Adams State undergraduate and graduate kinesiology students with experience in fitness testing as well as guiding and supporting program participants throughout the exercise program.
